The 4th race of the series took place at Preston Park, with two laps of the park totaling just over 5.2 km. A torrential rain shower just before the race made the course more like a cross county race than a trail race in places with some runners struggling with the wrong footwear. Rob Ray (pictured) tried, unsuccessfully, to stay incognito in his return to racing.
Mike Jefferies managed to hold off Rosie Smith to claim the race. Kath Aspin was 2nd lady beating Louise Trainor by 4 seconds.
