Charlton Debono and Jemima Farley triumph in Mtarfa at the BSJ 5K Road Running Series

The second race of the BSJ 5km Road Running Series once again saw what was a close repeat of the first race, with Charlton Debono and Mario Grech pushing each others limit until the final metres of the five kilometre course.


Grech took the lead from the get go, but with Debono hot on his heels it was evident that there would be intense competition between the two until the finish. A narrow gap separated the two for most of the race with Debono taking the lead approximately half way through the race. In the final stretch, Debono surged ahead to clinch his second consecutive win for this year’s Series, leaving Grech to settle for a close second. Chris
Micallef rounded out the podium, finishing in third place.
