Phil Gray reports on the race:

"What a cracking August morning as yours truly was on duty yet again, having just returned from a break in Edinburgh. Why? A little matter of the  Embankment 5 and about 250 people ready to address a demanding 5 miles. Neil took the marshals to their stations just before the start at 11. I was located at the Bandstand to direct runners and to capture some incredible images on camera. Not long to wait as Alan Turnbull of Beds and County led the field at this point, about 2 miles, and was the eventual winner in a cracking 26.25. Harriers were out in numbers and the ladies in the guise of Donna, Bev Hayes and Elaine did the business to secure the Ladies Team prize and Iva, not to outdone, secured the LV65 prize.

Well done to all who went the distance, to all who made the whole thing possible and to the weather for blessing the whole event with glorious sunshine. I welcomed a cold drink and a chat with Iva about her LV65 win and much more. Phew!"
