The time bested Boyce’s 41:50 set in Coventry back in 2010.
The race was won by the current world bronze medalist Perseue Karlstrom in 39:40.
Britain’s Callum Wilkinson was second in 39:51 while Harvard Haukenese from Norway was third.
Ireland’s David Kenny was an impressive fourth in 40.19 – just three seconds off a national under-23 record.
