It was also the fifth round of the Ryston XC Championship 9k race, with Andy Norton (40:47), and Anthony Barstard (41:44) both coming seventh in their respective classes.

In the ladies' class, Anita Cullen (50:54) was the first Dereham Runner home, followed by Hazel Cason in 58:16.

Neville Knights entered the Stamford 30k, which attracts many good club runners who use it as a build-up to a spring marathon.

In cold dry conditions, he was placed 160th in a time of 139:18.
