Triathlete Chris said: “It was an enjoyable but hard fought run as Benedict Westhenry from Weymouth St Paul’s was onlytwo seconds behind me.”
Independent runner Samuel Harle was in 3rd place and Amanda Milner from RMPAC was first lady.
A participant in the two-mile run since he was nine years old, it was the winning year for 14-year-old Harvey Camp with Dan Souster from PUFC in second place and Simon Crouch, PUFC third.
Hannah Westhenry, 14, Weymouth St Paul’s was first lady home.
Race organiser Andy De Havilland said: “Everything was in our favour tonight with perfect weather, happy runners and lots of spectators to cheer them on in this event which is in memory of father and son cancer victims Al and Andrew Dumble”
“We are very grateful to all who helped and to those who contributed prizes for the draw in which the star prize of a slow cooker was donated by Tesco Easton.”
