This year's competition introduced a new trial format with track races seeded on entry times rather than by age-groups, medal positions for each gender age category were then decided on a time-trial basis. This resulted in a few closer races than usual, including mixed races, one of which pitted husband vs wife. The Championships featured 6 Harriers competing in a total of 9 events.
Wole Odele picked up a medal of each colour with Gold in the M55 400m (58.40s), Silver in 60m (8.02s) and Bronze over 200m (26.51s), stretching his lead at the top of the UK M55 400m rankings with a season's best. Tim Carter also won Gold in the M65 400m (68.02) on his first outing of the season.

Natalie Mann secured a Silver medal with a throw uf 8.35m in the W35 shot competition. Ray Daniel also won Silver in the M60 800m, and Matthew Preston claimed double bronze in the M45 800m & 1500m. Peter Wishart narrowly missed out on Bronze in the M55 Shot with a season's best throw of 9.07m for 4th.
