Danny Blake took the far from ideal conditions in his stride and was first across the line in the opening race of 2016.
Wind & rain did little to deter a big field for the 4.75 mile event which is started on a graded handicapped basis but Blake took a relatively easy victory from Adrian Moody and Jeremy Hibble.
Mat “Dr Doz” Dorrian shrugged off the effects of a late night shift to post fastest run of the day but could not overcome his 21:30 handicap and crossed the line 37th of the 67 finishers in the adult race with an actual time of 28:20 . Louise Perrio was fastest woman in 30:18 with Jenny James again showing her promise with a fast 33:17 clocking.
Isaac Powers was first across the line in the accompanying junior 2.8 mile event with Mikey Ingrouille posting the fastest time of 18:42 and Eliza Mason fastest girl in 19 minutes 18 seconds.
