Autumn sun and good ground saw Sparkling performances from the runners. The race got off with a bang and after lighting the touch paper saw Alan Seamer in first for Long Eaton in 7th overall, Ian Adkin next in 16th Place.

Shaun Burton was a minute quicker than last years time with baby faced John Hay, Sean Gauton and the ever present Damian Cowlishaw completing the Long Eaton mens contingent.
