A good number of Harriers also placed individually, with Anna Folland and Gill Fullen first and second ladies in the league, as only a very small margin separated second and fourth team positions.

There was also a fantastic result for Steve Horton, who finished as third man overall in an exceptionally strong field.

Elsewhere, the Harriers were out in force for the popular Folksworth 15-mile race, where Anna Folland was second lady and Kirstie Meeten finished third overall.

Age group successes were earned by Rebecca Baxter (third in the LV65 category), Amanda Mayes (third LV55), and Jackie Popland (third LV60).
