Foster clocked a fast time of 43:32s to finish ahead of her female counterparts while finishing ninth out of 175 participants.

Foster highlighted that the race was a good one for her but also related that the bridge, because of its steep climb, was a tough challenge.

Meanwhile, Cleveland Thomas dominated the male version of the race winning the event in a time of 34:59s while Trinidad-based Guyanese Lionel D’Andrade finished second in a time of 35:16s. Winston Missenger grabbed the fourth position with a time of 35:57s which averted a Guyanese top three sweep.

While the 10k event saw Guyana having success, Devaun Barrington lit up the 5k circuit, winning the event in a time of 17:11s.
