Gill Carrick in her first race in 14 months after a long injury was happy with her time of 54:35, accompanied by club-mate Tony Goodwill. Looking strong through-out was Ian Tolfts, 49:30, knocking 33 seconds off his previous best time. Chris Dry completed the race, although carrying an injury, in 56:45.
The first pair of “running buddies” were Lynn Hudson and Shirley Creed, 59:13 followed closely by the other pair of Ellen, 1:06:15 (PB) and Donna Harper, 1:06:19. Looking strong at the finish was Alison Tighe, completing her first 10k race for many years, in a respectable 1:06:54.
