Following on from her recent win at the Giants Trail Race, in-form athlete Sarahjane Guiney (Unattached) led the field from the start, quickly establishing a comfortable lead which she maintained to win in a time of 19.20.
The remaining podium places were contested by Karen McLaughlin (Springwell Running Club), Veronica Nellins (Unattached) and Lisa Simpson (Acorns AC).
