Angus Holford led the way, winning the men’s event, with Jordan Middlemist third, James Morley seventh, Cameron Humphries eighth, Nate Filer ninth, Chris Sellens tenth, Dan Widdowson eleventh with Tim Ballard completing the scoring team in 26th place. Colchester’s women were led home by Lydia Callen in second place followed by team captain Tracy English in third, Emma Burgess fourth, Jennifer Lovelock sixth, Emese Bartha seventh and Denise Morley eight. Harriers are now three points clear in Pool A and with only two fixtures are in a strong position to retain their title.
