Third was former Invicta athlete Geoff Turner 34:51, now at Chelmsford AC.

In the ladies' race Invicta's Hedi Meehan set a course record and personal best in 40:22 and also took the The Rose Bowl trophy for being first Invicta lady home.

In second was Lisa Clayton of Invicta (45:22) and Rachel Wood ensured Invicta took the ladies' team prize.

Martyn Rouse of Invicta finished sixth overall but was first MV50 in 35:56 and took the Les Golding Memorial Trophy for first Invicta athlete home.

Les Golding's son Steve ran well to finish in a creditable 41:05 for 27th place. From 228 entrants there were 189 finishers.
