The results for the Men and Women were:
Mens 1st Place – Warwick Hadley (38m 19s)
Mens 2nd Place – Ross Brocklehurst (41m 20s)
Mens 3rd Place – Graham Woolley (41m 37s)
Womens 1st Place – Aislinn Darvell (44m 21s)
Womens 2nd Place – Julia Jones (48m 49s)
Womens 3rd Place – Leeanne Corvan (51m 01s)
The trophies for the fastest Man and Women and medals for all competitors were presented at the finish line by the new Lions President, John Carvey.
