The Yorkshire Wolds Half Marathon is run in conjunction with the Bishop Wilton Agricultural Show over a particularly demanding course.

The results are not yet available, however, four runners represented Bridlington Road Runners in the event.

Phill Taylor, as usual, was in the leading group until four miles from the finish, when he began to feel under the weather and almost dropped out.

But, he soon regained his composure and decided to continue running, managing to finish second and claim a rather appropriate prize of a garden fork and spade.

Meanwhile, Peter Gulc was seventh. Also running well were Sarah Wood, who was third lady, and Colin Parcell. Taylor, Gulc and Wood were also the winning team.

On a very hilly course Kevin Lewis ran in the Pudsey 10K at the weekend, completing the event in 137th place with a time of 51:17.

On the same day Shaun Foster finished fifth in the Fun Run with 10:54, which was seven minutes quicker than his time last year in the same event.

On Saturday morning Cathy Wood was the first lady to finish the weekly Parkrun at Sewerby in a time of 21:06. She was also the first Bridlington runner to finish and was overall sixth home.

Close behind was Simon Porter in eighth place with 21:19 and Kevin Sissons 10th in 21:58. Next was Ashley Porter who completed the course in 22:41 for 13th position.

Also running were :- Martin Allanson (20th) 23:55, Stuart Atkinson (24th) 24:32, Ben Smith (30th) 26:16, Zoe Williams (35th) 27:12 and Kirsten Porter (42nd) 30:20.
