As you would expect in a 19 mile race through snow and bogs, there were some big names in the top ten finishers and among them were Barlick runners David Mirfield and Dave Poole. Their joint superb performances along with that of Ben Hoyle were enough to secure 2nd team prize for Barlick, behind Calder Valley.
The race was won by Carl Bell, who after 19 miles was just 20 seconds in front of Jack Wood of Ilkley. Special mention should also be made of Sharon Taylor of Helm Hill, who was not only first lady, but finished 12th overall.
The Barlickers finished as follows:
7 David Mirfield 2:57:35
8 David Poole 3:00:49
52 Ben Hoyle 3:36:38
68 Gary Bradley 3:49:39
108 Jack Ingham 4:08:57
