Phil Gray Report on the Race:

'A dull September morn as yours truly was in action again. Well I suppose someone has to do it. Why? A little matter of a popular Swineshead 10, which attracted a lot more people than in 2004. Another reason was in the guise of Sarah Kennedy, of 'Game For A Laugh' fame, who apparently lives locally, who started the race and presented the prizes. A new course for 2005 and some cracking times as well. Jim McMahon of Beds and County flying away to win in 55.35, with Richard Dorman setting a new p.b. of 58.57 to finish second and Morgan Walters finishing third in 59.45 ish. Stuart Trevallion finishing sixth as Bedford Harriers secured the team prize. Loads of p.b.s on the day as the runners all completed a demanding 10 miles. Harriers were also officiating as well in the guise of Tony Dadd, Kevin Willett and Steve Crane. I welcomed a burger and bacon roll and a nice cup tea. Well done to all who went the distance and to all who made the whole thing possible, including a certain Mr and Mrs Salter. Jim McMahon needed a porter to carry his prizes as I headed home to a hot shower and rest. Phew ! '
