There were multiple personal bests in the 60 metre with Chisha Mposha sprinting to an 8.94 on the women's side, and on the men's side M'Kyle Rigby, Leon Metchie, and Kevin Myrthil all recording personal bests with Rigby finishing in 7.45, Metchie in 7.51, and Myrthil in 7.58.

In the 3000m, both Jonathan Peverill and Ian MacDonald raced to personal bests with Peverill finishing in 9:07.99 and MacDonald in 9:36.61.
