First home for Tunbridge Wells Harriers was Harriet Woolley, finishing in 14th place overall. Next up was race captain Jillian Holford in 30th place.

The next three to complete the six to score were; Sarah Lavender (61st), Sonja King (71st) and Claire O’Neill (74th). Special mention and well done to Claire and Ilona for their first run in a harriers vest, fantastic achievements. TWH finished 7th out of 13 teams in the six to score.
