A strong run from dutch athlete Karin Sloove made it one of the most closely fought women’s race ever but although Karin was able to pass Marie Meldrum, Prise’s running was proving to strong.
A happy Siobhan Prise at the finish line.  Although Susanne Buckenlei finished with a quicker time in 2012 it was over the shorter course so Prise's exceptional race was rewarded with a deserved record time.  Congratulations.
