Nardin Alvin wins the St. Martin 10K

MARIGOT--Guadeloupean Nardin Alvin from the club Jeunesse Athlétique Moulienne won Avenir Sportif Club’s 10K race on Sunday in a time of 33:37 followed by Avenir Sportif’s Omarco Robinson in second place in 35:09. Runners from Guadeloupe St. Martin, Sint Maarten, St. Barths and Anguilla took part in the race. There were 133 participants, including 52 women who participated, a fine female representation that the club would like to salute. From the start at 7:00am in Lowlands, the lead was taken by Gary Villegas Morris from Anguilla, before Nardin Alvin soon broke away from the lead group to assert his dominance. The first woman to finish was Calme Sunilda of the Endurance 97-1 club finishing in 39:14 followed by Murielle Lancien Paul of Avenir Sportif in 43:45. Athletes later gathered on the waterfront in Marigot for the awards ceremony, with cash prizes for the top five men and top five women. This 2024 edition of the St. Martin 10km took place on a course measured by the French Federation of Athletic (FFA) officials: Jean Jacques Cachou, Vice President of the National Running Commission, and Patricia Alt, President of the Occitanie Regional Running Commission. With this measurement certificate in hand, the club will be able to apply for a label, a guarantee of quality and the prospect of increasing the number of races offered in the region. The organisation of this event was also an opportunity for the Avenir Sportif Club to train local running officials, who were able to officiate under the guidance of the two FFA judges. The date has already been set for March 9, for the annual La Saint Martinoise, a 100% women's race. Registration will be open this week, until March 7.
