Janina Blasi finished 56th in 30.00 and Christine Dearman came 96th in 40.05. In the Over-40 men’s race Matt Adcock performed impressively for 20th overall and eighth in the Over-45 category.

Stewart Dearman crossed the line in 38th with a time of 42.43 in the Over-50 men’s race with a strong performance.

At the same venue, Angela Halford was selected to represent Herts in the inter-counties event for the first time.

Halford put in an impressive display to come 47th in 25.12.

Chloe Dearman was also in action in the Under-17 women’s 6k event, finishing 63rd in 21.27.
