Ian Williams was our first counter on this very tough up and down course running 1.35.53 for 92nd place, then as previously mentioned Suzanne Budgett and Pete Walkington both clocked the same time 1.40.47 for 124/125th places with fourth lady and first 0/45 for Suzanne. Rachel Metcalfe despite going over on her ankles a couple of times finished in 194th place and a time of 1.52.24. Mark Sammon must have found the course tough but did great for his 2.14.59 and 268th place.
