Forbes springs surprise

Sport | Published:

Bruno Francisco and Claire Forbes were the winners of Jersey Spartan AC's HSBC-sponsored Autumn 10k road race over the weekend.

In fine weather the race started at Gorey Village moved around St Catherine's then back along the coast down to Gorey and the finish in Longbeach car park.

Francisco was first home to claim victory in the men's race, having made his move at 2 km, while Dave Ibbotson and James Cunningham jolted for second place. Francisco crossed the line in 34 minutes 26 seconds from Ibbotson in 34.46.

There was a surprise in the women's race, with reigning champion Jo Gorrod dethroned by Claire Forbes, despite Forbes having run the 1500 metres and 5,000 metres for Jersey in the inter-insular in Guernsey the day before.
