PARAQUITA BAY, Tortola, VI- It was a pink affair this Saturday October 22, 2016 when the third race of the Mourant-Ozannes College Classic Series on Tortola was staged at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) on the Paraquita Bay campus.

Runners turned up in pink tops, pants, socks, caps and even shoes in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Meanwhile, defending male champion Reuben J. A. Stoby, in a time of 11 minutes and 32.71 seconds, cruised to victory and has now taken an unassailable lead in the series having won all three of the 2-mile races so far.

Settling for second was Julius Farley, who had Samuel Romney (third) nipping on his heels.

Katrina Lindsay, in a time of 13:57.15 seconds made it her second win in a row and is in a battle with Rosmond Johnson and Saungie Liburd for the overall female title.
