There were 133 finishers.
Having seen the results it seems difficult to work out who was where in the results, between the main race and the regional results. On the night Peter took Gold and Nick took Silver in the vet40+and for the ladies Ceri-Anne had Bronze 40+ (Yet in the results Ceri is 2nd and Jan 3rd)
I have to say a special well done to Stephanie Davies Under 20w, When I asked if there was anything for the under 20w I was told there were only two racing in the age category and I will see if we have enough mugs, Steph had a big battle with the other u20w both passing each other on numerous occasions, Steph managed to pull away in the last mile and won by 25secs, so despite all the different age categories in the race this was probaly the closest to be contested. Which I certainly think should of been recognised on the night and after all the category was advertised. (off my soap box!! yes Steph’s my daughter but it stands everyone, if you advertise an age category you should honour it never mind how many are running)
Well done to everyone who took part, a special mention to Gareth Green of San Domenico who came second and was only just behind the winner and this was after running the London Marathon only two days before in 2hrs 48.

After heavy rain all day, most were wondering if this would be called off.
It went ahead and conditions turned out to be ok.
