With Junior races setting off the proceedings, Thomas Gwillam was first to run, recording a time of 13.11 at the Whitby Cross Country, the final race of the season apart from the relays at Darlington in a week or two.

The ladies were next to go, Esther Harrison coming 7th in 26.54 with Bronwyn Mayo 10th in 27.17, Clare Rowntree 18th in 28.21, just pipping Lorraine Hiles, 19th in 28.23, Anna Whitham, 27th in 29.49, Kirsty Naylor 31st in 31.00 (her time matching her position), Clare Gwillam 45th in 33.46, Rosie Gatenby 47th in 34.21, Sara Armitage 58th in 36.39, Beth Haggath 61st in 37.45, Sharon Keegan 68th in 43.51, Margaret Wikeley 69th in 44.06, Christine Burn 70th in 46.06 and Denise Gandy 75th in 48.22.

This excellent set of results meant that the ladies came 2nd in the Team competition. Well done once again.

The V65+ men ran with the ladies, Rob Burn taking 29.45, Pedro Carrasco 32.13, Geoff Bullock 34.51, Ken Evitt 41.02 and Alan Wikeley 49.45...........
