TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO runners Gregory Hazell and Curtis Brereton were solid in the men's 60-64 category at the Ted Corbitt 15-kilometre race in New York, USA, on Saturday.
Running in cold and rainy conditions, Hazell returned a time of one hour, 16 minutes, 39 seconds to finish 21st in a field of 89 men in the 60-64 age-group. Brereton completed the 15K course in 1:17:14 for 24th spot in the category.
Of the 2,504 male runners in the race, 62-year-old Hazell was 968th. Brereton, also 62, was just outside the top 1,000, the Diego Martin athlete finishing 1,014th.
