1st-placed runner Matt Sharp said:

“Very happy with how Sunday went. Personally, it was a good test over a shorter distance to see how my fitness is after a good few weeks without racing.

“The conditions were much improved from earlier in the week, which led to some fast times on a technical and twisty course.

“It was brilliant to have such a strong Ryde Harriers turn out, with 4 in the top 10 ,and to secure the team prize was a well-deserved result for the guys.”
