It was hard and heavy rain made it worse. However, 85 year-old Roy Thomas, 'Mass Roy', refused to give up. Thomas, who organisers say has participated in most High Mountain Coffee 10K road races since the annual event started in 1983, battled to the finish line in the latest edition of the event in rain and fading light, to the great delight of spectators who had patiently waited for him at Williamsfield.
Proceeds of the High Mountain Coffee 10K road race festival goes to the dialysis unit of the Mandeville Regional Hospital.
