Sean Trott doubles up on race victories

Sean Trott made it a weekend of victories winning the Axa Man on the Run 5K road race, and clocking the fastest time in the BNAA cross-country race the day before.

Trott went one better than last year, when he was runner-up, to win in 16min 58sec. He was closely followed by Moses Mufandaedza, who ran 17:08.

Third in the men-only race, which started and finished at Warwick Academy, was Kwame Curling in 17:43. Curling had been Trott’s nearest rival in the three-mile cross country at the Botanical Gardens the previous day.

Domico Watson and Tommy Marshall were fourth and fifth respectively, having also won their age categories in Saturday’s cross-country event.

Covid-19 health and safety restrictions meant the 5K, now in its eighth year, had a smaller field of competitors, and runners set off in waves. There were 130 finishers in the main race.

A junior race over 2.2km saw Warwick Academy’s Chavi Pacheco-Hill, 9, claim the top spot in 9:55. Runner-up was Timothy Jackson, 10, in 10:19, followed by Cillian McGlynn, 9, in 10:25.

In the 5K competitive walk, Shinah Simons was first in 35:41, with Joseph Matthew second in 36:01 and Garic Swainson third in 38:42.
