Hell N’ Back 2014 champion Dominic Dyer easily defended his title on Sunday, winning the 10k by a clear margin of over a minute.
Dyer finished in 38 minutes, 17 seconds ahead of Mike Ridsdale (39:27) in second. Ridsdale had pulled away from third placed Will Edwards (40:08).
The run began at Indies Suites in Raleigh Quay, off West Bay Road, and wound into West Bay – via Town Hall Road and Hell Road – with the turnaround point being Devil’s Hangout.
Runners looped back to West Bay Road, with the finish line at Calico Jack’s.
Fourth overall was Sara Ellis, the first female, who won the race in a fast time of 40:16. Joanna Mansi was second female in 43:56, with Katy Ward third in 45:46.
It was a busy weekend for 16-year-old Dyer, who won the Pirates Week 5k run on Friday in a record 16:52. He is in impressive form and barring injury should be amongst the medals at the 2016 CARIFTA Games in Grenada.
Dyer won a CARIFTA bronze in the 3,000 meters this year in St. Kitts and is going for gold next time.
Other good Hell N’ Back runs came from Eric Schmigall, Matt Volkwyn, Hayden Isbister and Bruce Mangatam. There was another impressive run by Liam Sinclair, 11, who continues to improve and was 15th overall in 45:37.
