Three legends return
Three road running legends are on the island for this weekend’s events.
Bart Yasso, the former chief running officer for Runner’s World, is instantly recognisable to millions of athletes of all ages and abilities. His enthusiastic association with the sport spans more than three decades, and in recent years he has become a regular visitor to Bermuda. Yasso has travelled more than 2.5 million miles during his career to compete in and report on running events. He has just published a book titled Life on the Run, that contains stories and anecdotes from his remarkable career.
Yasso will be competing in the Bermuda Triangle Challenge, wearing bib number 2260.
Also in the Challenge is Geoff Smith, who won the Boston Marathon in 1984 and 1985, and holds the Bermuda International 10K event record, of 28:14, set in 1982. He will be wearing bib number 2212.
And Steve Jones, who set a world record for the marathon in 1984, of 2:08:05, will be out and about during the races as he was last year. Jones’ best marathon time was 2:07:13 in the Chicago Marathon in 1985, and 33 years later it remains the fastest time achieved by a British athlete.
