The holiday season took its toll with only four runners available for the penultimate event in the Bourne Town Harriers summer series, the Barney Memorial 5k held at Ferry Meadows.

Richard Houghton was next home, breaking the 22 minute barrier for a personal best time of 21m54s, with Melissa Woodcock running as the final member of the team.
