There was also a shorter five-kilometre race and children’s races of two and a half and one kilometre. First in the main race was Guernsey runner Steve Dawes who completed the course in just over an hour followed by Ben Wilden and Lee Garland. Race organiser Michael Doyle came seventh and was the second veteran runner home. Sark runner James Croshaw won the five-kilometre race and Elenor Gallagan won the shorter race. Merewyn Hartley and Jill Blakeney were joint first ladies across the line in the main race.
