A total of thirteen teams signed on across all the Midland based clubs. In the A/B category we had team 1 with Billy Cunnane, Graham Morgan, Robbie Kenny and Tosh Kiernan. In Team 2 we had Colm Lynch, Conor Hughes Paul Crowley and Peter Rimmer.

Team 1 managed to finish 2nd with a time of 28.58 and team 2 crossed the line in a time of 29.19 to finish 3rd. Well done to Tullamore CTC who won in a time of 28.29.
