More than 150 early-morning runners/walkers made their way to John Smith’s Bay on Sunday for the Swans Charity Run/Walk.

With the event held to honour Edwina Arorash’s four decades of dedication to running, a fantastic atmosphere was generated in the build-up with Arorash and plenty of her family members taking to the start line.

With more than 40 years of Bermuda Half-Marathon Derby appearances under her belt, this five-kilometre run would not have stretched Arorash’s stamina and she came home in a time of 35:21 to much cheering and applause.

While Arorash has plenty of running experience under her belt, the race was won by a runner who has far fewer miles in his legs in the shape of 17-year-old Jake Brislane.

One of the youngest competitors in the field, the teenager finished with a time of 16:24, more than ten seconds clear of his nearest rival Thomas Mills with Shannon Lawrence finishing more than a minute behind to take third.

Rose-Anna Hoey was the first female home in the 5k Swans Charity race

Fresh from her win in the cross-country race at Fort Scaur last week, Rose-Anna Hoey continued her return from an injury layoff by becoming the first female to finish and the sixth overall in a time of 19:14, which was more than four minutes clear of the second woman to cross the line, Tereza Ruiz.
