The senior race was a different course this year. The mud, deep burns and fences made it like an obstacle race over the 4.2 mile course. Course specialist Darin Dougal was first home for Moorfoots in 7th with Mike McGovern and Will Hynd followed in at 14th and 15th. The team will have to wait until the final race at Berwick to secure their third victory in a row for the series.
Other positions were:
Steve Martin 29th, Russell Anderson 34th, Aegier McIver 38th, Ian Munro 44th, Julia Connor 68th, Alexandra Campbell 82nd, Dave Wardman 107th, Alison Caw 113th, Jock Douglas 120th and Mike Pearson 136th.
