Morpeth through Richard Johnson came home in 6th position on Leg 1, before Jane Hodgson, their Veteran athlete, took them into second place on Leg 2. Sam Hancox was untroubled in taking Morpeth into the lead on the final leg coming home 79secs ahead of Michael Hedley of Tyne Bridge, with Andrew Bell finishing third for Elswick.
Hancox also clocked the fastest time Hodgson was the fastest lady ahead of another veteran Justina Heslop who moved Elswick into 4th place on Leg 2.
