GB & NI 7th and the Eritreans really seem to be growing into a force in the worlds. With Kenyans starting to move into the individual GP races, one can only wonder how long it'll be before one of their teams must be contended with as well.|

Congratulations to the senior and junior women on making the top ten teams. The senior and junior men put in very solid performances.
The runners would like to thank the membership for their support which provided great additional motivation when the pressure came on in the race. There was a great gang of supporters out there also.

Also well done to Gerry Brady ,Mags Grennan and their helpers and assistant managers for all their hard effort through the year , this was no fluke and the junior performances are particularily encouraging
