Steve Abbott was 9th in 39:55 finishing 3rd M40.  Steve Myerscough came in 14th and 1st M45 with 41:56. Peter Cruse was 3rd M55 and 22nd overall in 43:34, with Finlay McCalman 70th in 51:52. Sharlan Butcher placed 30th woman and 99th in 60:09.

Paul Gregory took it all in his stride and finished 8th and 2nd M40 in 1:14:46, with two severe climbs over the moorland circuit. Steven Gore found it challenging but he came in 18th in 1:19:59 with a good performance for 4th M35. Elliot Costello finished well in 68th place in a time of 1:28:47.
