Although wet underfoot, weather conditions on the day were ideal and the challenging 10-mile race, featuring some fairly brutal hill sections, was a great success for its organisers, the South West Road Runners.

It was a good day for the Harriers with three finishing in the top ten - Sam Kelly came in third in 1:04, followed by Simon Minting in 1:06 and Anthony Hatchard in 1:07. Hugh Marsden was also the first V50 in 1:21.
