John McHugh was 6th in the M60 800m but after an hours preparation consisting of consuming tea and sandwiches he made the podium in the 1500m winning the bronze medal in a very respectable 5:48.28. Stuart McCleane ran 61.14 to come 4th in the M50 400m and the very young Louis McCarthy ran 15:53.70 in the M35 5000m. Congratulations to everyone who competed.
