Five Barlickers entered this race, which was won by Tim Ellis of Calder Valley. He was followed home by Sam Watson of Wharfedale and Lee Athersmith of Bingley.
Sam Wadsworth had a good run to lead the Barlickers home, finishing in 8th position,
Conditions for the race were such that it was muddy underfoot, with the prevailing wind behind the runners, but when the showers did come down, they were heavy, with hail greeting the runners as they reached Water Sheddles Reservoir. In the early stages of the race, Sam Watson was shadowing Tim Ellis and looked to be waiting for the moment to pounce, but he ran out of steam in the last stage and could only watch Tim pull away from him.
Sam Wadsworth was lying 10th at Water Sheddles Reservoir, but climbing the gate, as opposed to the stile moved him into 9th place and on the descent to Ponden Reservoir he gained another place which he retained until the end.
