Dage Minors has ruled himself out of the Mile Reloaded elite race at the National Sports Centre on Friday because of illness.

Minors looked set to face Lamont Marshall in a mouth-watering “winner-takes-all” battle but said he has been unable to train since last Friday after being struck down with a bout of sickness.

The 26-year-old, who became the first Bermudian to win the elite race in the Front Street Mile in 2018, said he was disappointed not to be able to prove he was the fastest miler on the island.

“I had every intention to run [on Friday] but I have come down sick since last Friday, resulting in me not being able to train,” Minors told Bernews.

“I hadn’t actually registered. It’s unfortunate because I had put in a good fall of training and wanted to test myself and see where I was heading into the new year.

“Over the past few years, we haven’t been able to have the best guys race each other for different reasons.

“I’ve had several National Championships where I’ve been the only senior competitor, so I feel bad that I’m not able to compete with Lamont in that regard.”

The Mile Reloaded, which starts at 6 pm with junior races, will be the first event at the Flora Duffy Stadium, newly renamed in honour of Bermuda’s first gold medal winner at the Olympic Games.

The deadline for entries is today and Covid safety protocols will be applied for spectators and participants.
