The major action of the weekend came from the British Athletics cross challenge at Antrim, though the vast majority of non-elite distance runners took part in the various county championships held over the weekend.

BMC Indoor meeting, Sheffield, January 5

The first major indoor meeting of the year enabled the winners to temporaily go top of the Power of Ten rankings.

In the 800m, teenager Jamie Webb (Adrian Webb), the 2013 Northern indoor champion, set a PB of 1:51.34 in defeating World Masters record holder Anthony Whiteman, who is over twice his age and ran 1:53.29.

The women's 800m was won by Adelle Tracey (Craig Winrow) in 2:08.96.

The former European junior 800m silver medallist Niall Brooks (Norman Poole) won the 1500m in 3:47.48 in his indoor debut. 

Claire Gibson (Derek Parker) won a competitive women's 1500m in 4:19.29 to go top of the UK rankings.
