For the first time in many years, the winner of the Hanney 5-mile road race came from host club Oxford City.

Guillaume Philipon, who has recently joined City, also ran one of the quickest times recorded over this course.

He was followed home by Cirencester's Mike Smith.

White Horse Harrier Peter Wilson appears to be regaining his old form after taking third place, and the next local runner to finish was Bicester newcomer John Starrett, who just got the edge on Banbury's Simon Pritchard.

The V40 race was won by Harriers' Tim Hughes, who just held on to beat Westbury's Gary Eagle, with new veteran Nic Russell not far behind.

Roy Treadwell provided the hosts with another win in the V50 race. Local runner David Matthews won the V60 race in an impressive 33.32.

Oxford City won the men's team race, while White Horse Harriers easily took the women's team title, with Lisa Godding-Feltham coming second overall and Sheila Bailey third. Headington's Annette Hack was fourth and City's Gwyneth Hueter fifth.

The race attracted 156 entrants, with 142 runners completing the course.
