Denmark-Virgin Islands Transfer Marathons concluded the St. Croix part of the marathon series last Sunday, March 12, with spectacular runs: a 3:18:52 marathon win by 65-year-old former Olympian Calvin Dallas of St. Thomas and a 4:01:30 win by Jessica Carter of St. Croix. So much occurred in the series that was outstanding including Peter Simonsen’s 300th marathon; repeat marathon one-two finishes and top placing by Torben Jensen and Martin Thomsen; Mary Vargo’s 10K wins on St. Thomas and St. John; repeated wins or top finishes from Karin Eriksen; and much more.
Also praiseworthy is the accomplishment of Kim Smit and Per Hjorth, who possessed the imagination and stamina to organize this unprecedented event on behalf of the Danish visitors and in commemoration of the historic Virgin Islands Centennial.
