Down in fouth place was Terry Bates who had a good walk to add to his collection of best times for his age group.
First of the women to finish was Jane Rowlinson in 35.10, ahead of Jayne Le Noury and Rose Druckes. Allan Harris and Joanne Le Prevost both improved on their personal best times by around thirty seconds, despite getting caught in the heavy rain that opened up on those walkers outside of thirty minutes, on an otherwise fine morning.
