Peel Hill Fell Race
There was another good turnout of 59 runners for Peel Hill race

Simon Skillicorn won round two of the Isle of Man's Winter Hill League on Saturday with race one winner Lloyd Taggart away competing in the UK.

The 37-year-old Skillicorn finished 24 seconds ahead of Tom Cringle, with Andy Barron 10 seconds further back.

"The conditions were perfect and it was nice of Lloyd to have a week off," said Skillicorn.

"The change to the route meant the start was quite steep and Tom and Andy made really strong starts."

He added: "The conditions under foot were soft and wet, which is great for grip, and once I got nearer the top I really got into my stride."

Rosy Craine was the leading lady home in 24 minutes 19 seconds.

Lesley Webb was the second lady home, with Rose Hooton third on her return to the fells.

Meanwhile, 15-year-old Jason Moore was the leading junior in 20 minutes 37 seconds, finishing ninth overall.
