Forty year old John Parker finished twentieth overall in 32:43 and earned a Midland Masters silver medal in his age category. Anthony Bailey also ran well and was just six seconds outside his pb with a 33:37 clocking. The Harriers ladies performed well with Vickie Wilkinson running her fastest 10k for a while to finish as fourth veteran and twelfth lady in 38:48. Jo Wilkie continued her fine recent form by lowering her pb to 40:37 and Jane Thomas recorded a time of 41:36.
