MARCH 26—Reuben Stoby improved his own course record to bring the curtains down on the Dive BVI 5K Series Color Run on Saturday in Virgin Gorda, that attracted 56 participants and raised $378 for the BVI Cancer Society.

Stoby chopped 23 seconds off the 18 minutes and 46 seconds course record he established in his last race to win in 18:18, as the only runner under 20 minutes.

“As I said the last time, I felt like I could have gone some more. Unfortunately, the road was a little slippery and doesn’t suit my style of running,” Stoby noted. “I had to take it a little careful there, but I’m pleased I was able to beat my last time.”

Stoby is looking forward to his first race in the Blenheim Trust 5K Series in Carrot Bay on Saturday, since returning to the territory.  “That’s my main aim,” he said. “I have been focusing on that and I look forward for more competition there.”

Rosmond Johnson—who won the overall women’s division in the series—overhauled NiMade Oniasih to win in 22:31. She said being behind helped her a lot. “This morning, I was really tired and I was thinking I’m not going to do it again, but I pulled it off,” she noted. “NiMade was ahead of me most of the time and I caught her on the last bit of the hill coming back, then I left her there and I had a sprint finish and I didn’t see her.

Julius Farley who was second in 20:00, was the overall series winner with Virgin Gorda resident Curwin Andrews taking the second spot. Johnson took the women’s division with NiMade Oniasih second overall.
