The 2010 racing year kicked off with the annual Trig Points Race, due to bad weather the course had to be shortened slightly, but the weather did not put off the runners with 144 on the start line, Peter Vale and Steve Cale went head to head for the first half of the race, as they headed back Pete pulled away leaving Steve struggling to breath in the cold air, a later nav error by Steve gave Pete an easy win by nine yes 9 minutes, Matthew Clewes who is definately having a purple patch finishing a strong second and Steve came into third place
