I hadn't read the Manx Independent this morning (it wasn't out at the time!) or I would have know that there was also a mother and daughter combination completing the course.
Marie Gilbertson completed the course for the fifth year in a row, less than 8 minutes outside her best time in 19:08:20. Her daughter Samantha finished with her and, if this picture is anything to go by, walked every step of the way with her.
Samantha Draper is only 23 and with an opening time like is surely someone who could feature very highly in future years. Although I have just discovered a slight typo in her name in 2007, she walked to Andreas on that occasion.
Well done to you both.
All we need now is a father and son combination.
