A Bermuda Heritage Short: The 13-mile Bermuda Half-Marathon Derby road race has been drawing competitors and large crowds since 1909. Long synonymous with the May 24 Bermuda Day holiday, the event began as a friendly cross-country race between Bermudians and British soldiers stationed here. The first race was hosted by the Somerset Athletic Club and that year a British soldier crossed the finish line first, much to the disappointment of the Bermudian entrants who requested a re-match the following year. With the local runners eager to prove they could beat the British, the Half-Marathon Derby came into being. Race legends include "Sir" Stanley Burgess, Arthur “Goo Gip” Lambert, Ed Sherlock (pictured), Kavin Smith and Chris Estwanik, the only five runners to have won at least six Half-Marathon Derby titles each. Happy Bermuda Day 🇧🇲
