Lockley wins Men's event for first time

A Manx long distance runner is now just one win short of being the joint-most successful woman in the history of cross country on the Island.

Rachael Franklin is the 2019 Isle of Man senior women's champion, which takes her tally to six titles in the past seven years.

Another victory would take her level with Christine Kissack/Prescott, who won seven titles in the 1970s and 80s.

In the men's event this weekend, Ollie Lockley won the title for the first time - some 38 years after his father Dave won in 1981.
