Pride of place goes to Cameron Everist who comprehensively won the 5k Fun Run in a time of 17:05 minutes.

Other Bourne Town Harrier athletes who took part included Molly Bennett, Richard Cooper, Maisie Brownlow, Abi Cooper, Elin James, Owen James and Roy James.

Two Bourne athletes competing for Grantham AC also took part in the 5k. Aaron Hunt finished in third place in 18:31, and Saskia Hunt finished in 58th place 12th girl in 23:05 with a new personal best by 21 seconds.
