A close fought battle for third spot saw Mike Pace just edge out Tom Brooke Taylor and Steve Bryant recording five minutes thirty three seconds. In the Senior Ladies race Tina Giles also managed to retain her title recording six minutes and twenty two seconds, just managing to hold off the fast closing Kay Middleton who had to settle for the runners up spot again.
