Despite dense fog making life difficult for the three under age races, it cleared just in time for the Open 6K and spectators were treated to terrific battles for individual honours in both the men and women's races on the fast three lap course.

Host club City of Derry Spartans were supreme on the day, delivering almost a clean sweep of the individual podiums and easily retaining both team titles.

Luke McCarron, Sean Melarkey and Fintan Stewart led all the way and a sprint finish saw then finish in that order while Catherine Whoriskey and Breege Connolly also battled throughout with Whoriskey hanging on to take pole position ahead of her clubmate and North Down's Katie Moore in third.

Ciara Toner and Angeline McShane sealed the Spartans team win while Allan Bogle, Conal McGinley and Darragh Crossan completed the scoring six for the delighted red vests in the men's team contest.
