It was perhaps fitting that the overall course record holder was present when out-of-stadia athletics returned its traditional L’Ancresse Full Course ‘home’ and sure enough course record holder Lee Merrien cruised to a comfortable victory from James Priest and crossed the line over a minute clear with a time of 26 minutes 46 seconds for the near 5 mile course.

Middle distance specialist Richard Bartram has had an injury plagued 6 months but looked to be getting some form back with his 3rd placed finish.

On a version that appeared to be running nearly 2 minutes slow due to several course adjustments and a strong westerly wind Sarah Mercier put in a strong run to place leading woman in 29 minutes 35 seconds.

Rosie Williams and Alice Loveridge were second and third women home.
