Helen Russell was 49th, Miriam Strbakova 90th and Dagmar Prinzing 97th and 11th over 45 as the ladies finished 14th out of 34 complete teams.

There were also prizes for several of the club’s male runners, who raced over a 9.3km course.

Leading the B&R charge was Mark Appleton in 35th place as he finished ninth overall.

Ian Keyte was 50th and second overall in the over 55 category and Phil Richardson 107th and overall winner of the over 60 event.
