HUNDREDS of budding Mo Farahs and Paula Radcliffes took to the streets of Algeciras for the town’s third half marathon.

The sun was shining as the runners began the grueling 21km run in the town centre, heading alongside the port before venturing out into the countryside.

The winner Mustapha Sabili crossed the line to raucous cheers at an impressive 1 hour 11 minutes.

Even the Olive Press’ own Chief Reporter Tom Powell managed to drag himself over the line, in his ‘triumphant comeback’ from surgery before the summer.

“I wasn’t pleased with my time, or my fitness level, but I can’t complain considering I couldn’t even walk a few months ago,” he said.
