Tim's lead over Callum remains solid at three minutes. But Tim Don has overtaken to put himself in third only 30 seconds behind second-place.
Reed still in the lead but the big story is that Tim Don is running like a mad man and has passed Matthews and Matty Reed.
In the womens race, Kessler continues to lead with three minutes over Mel Hauschildt. Rachel McBride is another minute back and McQuaid is 10 seconds behind. McBride
