More than 500 runners and walkers aged six to 76 took to the streets on Sunday for the Butterfield and Vallis 5K.

With the roads around the back of Hamilton a sea of colour from 8am as competitors prepared for their runs, it was some of Bermuda’s youngest runners who took to the start line first for the Primary School 1K.

And it was six-year-old Nolan Horrobin who took out the first race of the morning, with the Saltus Grammar student finishing in a time of 4min 31sec with Harrington Sound Primary student Myi’a Caisey finishing fourth overall and winning the girls’ event.

The Upper Primary race, which was run over 2.7K, was won by ten-year-old Sami Luber of Warwick Academy, who was successful in a time of 12:41 to beat Khaleef Daley and Adrian Myers. Top honours for the girls also went to Warwick Academy, with this months’s Butterfield Mile winner Naomi MacGuinness following up in style.

The Middle School event, again over 2.7K, went the way of Saltus Grammar’s Christian Piney, who beat Ta’han Eve in a time of 11:27. Kelise Wade of Sandys Middle Schools, another winner on Front Street Mile night, was the first girl across the line in 13:24.

The Senior School event, which was run over the full 5K distance, went to J’auza James of Berkeley Institute, who came home 11 seconds clear of Declan Reardon. Daria Desmond of Warwick Academy prevailed in the closest finish of the morning, winning the girls’ race by just a second over Saltus’s Jaeda Grant.

The Seniors race was won by Adam Prunty, whose time of 17:19 was enough to beat Will Green by 27 seconds with Fred Foxley rounding off the podium in third. Gayle Lindsay who won the Local Female race at the Butterfield Mile, again won the women’s race.

The 5K competitive walk was won by JasmineBlaire Majors, who beat her nearest competitor Carol Redahan by nearly a minute.
