254 runners completed the 2 lap course which was run in very warm conditions – the route covered a mix of trail and road that was quite twisty in places and made even more difficult having to negotiate a closed stile twice that should have been opened on the night !

Matthew Shaw (Salford Harriers) took the honours on the night in 15m 35s closely followed by the boys in red.

Martyn Bell – 15m 48 (4th)
Alastair Murray – 16m 16 (8th)
Gareth Booth – 16m 48 (12th)
Andy Townsend – 17m 23 (24th)
