A record entry of 98 runners tackled Wednesday's Killer Mile, held over a new course covering the slopes of Sky Hill. The tough course, designed by Chris Kirk, lived up to it's name but seemed to be very well received by the competitors.

Race victory went to visiting runner and NRFTW competitor Daryl Hibberd of Leeds based Valley Striders AC. Fast improving Jack Okell (Manx Harriers) was runner up just 4 seconds behind with the same margin separating mile specialist and club mate Steven Garrett in 3rd. 

It was great to see a good turnout of juniors too - Alex Bell (U18) was the pick finishing in an excellent 7th overall ahead of recent track star Rhys Owen (U16), brother Ieuan (U14) and Corbyn Schade (U12). Aiden Myers of Northern AC was quickest under 10.

Thanks to all the timekeepers, marshalls and landowners, particularly Silly Moos who allowed the use of their field for parking. Congratulations to Chris Kirk and his team for designing and maintaining the course.
