After a scenic run from the centre of the village through forest lined roads, the first man to cross the finish line was Wesley Benton (Sudbury Joggers) in 33:15; almost a minute ahead of Robert Chenery (Ipswich Jaffa). First lady home was Jane Clarke (CoNAC) in 38:33 seconds, and in second Kim Lo (Haywards Heath) with 39:24.

A fun run for the junior athletes saw over 50 children aged four to 16 stride out, with encouragement from the spectators.
