Fourteen runners from Biggleswade AC tackled the challenging cross-country course around Ampthill Park on Sunday.

Rob Morgan was again first man home for Biggleswade while Mac Mackenzie just pipped Vince Plosky to the finish line.

Derek Litchfield's season continues to go from strength to strength with an improvement of 14 places on the previous race in the series.

Long serving member Arthur Mitchell finished well ahead of many much younger runners.
