A field of 106 competitors took part in Sunday’s Western AC 10-mile walk held in memory of Julie Brew, who died in 2008.

The vast majority were ‘fun walkers’, with the emphasis very much on enjoyment.

Two charities benefitted from the event - Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation and St John Ambulance.

In the first five years of the event, the walk raised £16,000 for Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation - Julie having died of an undetected heart condition at 38 while out walking.

All of the walkers, with the exception of End to End/Parish winner Michael George, set off at 9.15am - the latter starting one hour later with the runners.

He completed the undulating course in 1hr 26min 07sec, almost four minutes quicker than Richard Wild.

Parish regular Michael Bonney was third and all-rounder Phil Mackie fourth in his first race walk since the TT Relay event many years ago.

Janice Quirk was the leading woman in sixth place overall.

Robert Wright set a new over-65s record in 1:55.33, while the oldest competitor was 80-year-old Norman Senogles.
