Despite the appearance of Lee Merrien on the start line Dave Kreckeler’s 48 year old record for the event(34:39) remains intact.
Merrien ran a hard race and after going through 3 miles in 14min 30 sec looked on schedule but the strong headwinds encountered over the last half of the route took effect and he eventually finished in 35 minutes 27 seconds.
It was a lonely race for the leaders as Mike Wilesmith was a clear second (39:42) and Tristan Robilliard third(40:53).
Chantal Green was leading woman in 48 minutes 50 seconds, just clear of Becky Le Maitre (49:10) and Mel Nicolle(49:24).
