Leon Chetcuti, Josann Attard Pulis Finish Strong in 10k Hudson Race Series in Dingli

Brandon Saliba, Charyl Fava take the win in the 5k Race.

The Hudson Race Series Dingli Edition drew another sell-out crowd on Sunday as hundreds of runners took part in one of the Series’ toughest races due to the hilly nature of the course.

The 10k race saw Leon Chetcuti and Mark Herrera run side by side, from the very start of the 10km race, with Chetcuti edging Herrera in the last few metres to pip him to the win, with just one second to spare.  Heathcliff Vella finished in third place. 

Josann Attard Pulis won the females race, and she took the lead from the start and maintained it until she crossed the finish line.  She was followed by Jolene Debattista, who finished in second place, while Caroline Ciappara took third place.

Brandon Saliba won the 5k race. Thurstan Dimech and Stefan Sultana fought to the finish, with only a second separating them at the finish line.

Charyl Fava emerged the winner of the 5km race, she took the lead with Veronika Kersyte hot on her heels, though Fava kept on her strong pace to stave off Kersyte’s attempts to overtake her.  In third place was Norah Zammit who also gave a good performance.

Prizes and trophies were presented to the winners by Race Director Charlie Demanuele, who congratulated the winners. Demanuele went on to thank the athletes for their ongoing presence as well as Hudson Holdings for the ongoing support they provide for these races.

The organizers also thank Dingli and Rabat Local Councils, Rabat District Police, Transport Malta, the medical teams, and race officials for their contribution towards this race.

The next race of the Hudson Race Series will take place on Sunday 1st September in Burmarrad.
