    Lamont Marshall: Winner of last year's Fairmont to Fairmont race.


Lamont Marshall and Deon Breary will be looking to defend their men’s and women’s titles when the 36th Fairmont to Fairmont race is held tomorrow.

Marshall recorded a first victory in the 7.2 mile race last year when he overcame a challenge from Kenya’s former World Marathon champion Douglas Wakiihuri and former race winner Jay Donawa to win in 40 minutes and 14 seconds.

Breary won the women’s title at the first attempt when she beat defending champion Victoria Fiddick, clocking 48.15, as Joanne Shillington finished second.

Some 269 adults, 55 juniors and 14 three-runner relay teams had signed up for the event by early yesterday

Team Monty, consisting of Paul Hopwood, Joe Barroso and Chris Harris, were the winning corporate team last year, finishing in 44.19.

The race will start at 9am at Fairmont Hamilton and take the runners to the Fairmont Southampton Beach Club via Harbour Road and Middle Road before climbing the hill up to the hotel and down to the beach club.

For many runners the race will serve as a warm-up for Bermuda Marathon Weekend in two weeks time.
