After Katrina Crumpler crossed the finish line, Highland Spring College Classic Series director Stephanie Russ Penn, said “the series has just become interesting.”

Penn was referring to the fact that each of the first three races had been won by  a different women, with Tarika “Tinker Bell” Moses who won race two finishing third in 13 minutes and 33.20 seconds; race one winner Samantha John placing second in 13:23.23 with Crumpler getting her first win of the series on Saturday in 13:05.56.

“I was a bit stronger today and I managed to win this time,” Crumpler said. “I went harder on the hill and powered past all the ladies when I was feeling fresh. Last time I got caught on the downhill but I must have made a little more ground on the hill this time and managed to keep the pace.”

Regarding the finale Crumpler agreed it’s going to be a showdown and its nice to have competition.

“It can be anyone of us,” she said. “Probably one of those two because I’m a lot older.”

Tarique Moses put himself in the drivers seat with another victory over defending champ Khiry Creque after running 11:27.56 to win. He said he was surprised because he was feeling sick.

“I don’t know if I’m getting Chickungunya or what but I wasn’t expecting to run that fast, that’s surprising to me,” he said. “The was a hot pace to start and Khiry was 15m ahead of me but on the way back it seems like he started to wobble or got tired. The return is the strongest past of my race so I managed to catch him and went leave him.”

Leading the series 2-1 over Creque with one race to go, Moses said he’s a competitor he always wanted to take down and would be happy to win the overall title on Nov 15.

The territory’s Premier Dr. Orlando Smith was among participants. He had been dropping his wife Lorna off to races to compete on the Rotary Club of Tortola’s team but his grandson gave him an invitation.

“This is quite a good experience being out in the early morning and getting a run, it was good,” he said. “I’m quite pleased to see so many people participating. What it tells me is there’s a lot of people in the community who are conscious about their health and the need for exercise and I think more people should become engaged.
