Mathew Dewey also recorded a new PB in 34:49 to finish in 84th. Solomon Lane ran hard in 36:45 and despite Rob Cliffe running faster (39:40), Lane got the nod in the same time of 36:45 on crossing the line ahead of Rob.

The B team was brought home by Dougie Brisco in 39:33 in 275th place, while Tim Bennett clocked 39:54 for 300th place and a new PB.
