By the end of the first lap Juliet Potter (Charnwood AC) had already established a lead of around 20 metres over Emma Ward (City of Stoke AC), with Louise Damen (Bournemouth AC) a further 40m back, Gemma Phillips (Kendal AAC) and Helen Bebbington (Royal Sutton Coldfield AC) were chasing the leading three. Potter, from Nottingham, eventually finished 15 seconds clear of Ward in a time of 18:02, with Gemma Phillips in third.
Juliet Potter told Athletics Weekly: "I started slowly but worked my way through.", Ward added "Juliet is in amazing form so I just tried to stick with her. I'm not a cross country runner really."
