Over 120 athletes lined up on Sunday morning for the 12th Edition of the Foulées de l’Asptt 10-kilometre road race.

The number included Frenchemn, women, and children, as well as two Saint Lucian runners.

At the end of the course, the two competitors from the nearest neighbour of the French overseas department stood tall. Jason ‘Superman’ Sayers, competing for Golden Star Athlétisme, won the men’s race in 34:25. The time is nearly two minutes off his best run, a time he ran in Barbados in 2007. But according to the 41-year-old from Corinth, “I was just playing with them; it was hot, and I was running easy.”

Thierry Jacques Edouard of FR Fond Nicholas finished a fairly close second in 34:35.

The other Saint Lucian, Michael ‘Mega’ Biscette, ran 35:29 for third, representing FR Fond Nicholas.
