Entries are coming in thick and fast for the annual Bridlington Half Marathon, which will be held on Sunday October 16 this year.

Race organiser Judy Allison said: “The entries are coming in well, there were 431 as of Sunday evening, which is encouraging.

“We are able to use the new East Riding Leisure Bridlington as our race headquarters this year and we will be based in the foyer nearest the car park on the morning of the race.

“The closing date for the half marathon entries is Monday October 10, but we will be taking late entries for the one-mile family fun run on the day.”

The half marathon starts at 10am. with the fun run setting off at 10.15am after the main race has gone.

Sunday saw a number of Bridlington Runners athletes taking on the magnificent Sutton 10k multi-terrain event just outside York.

The run took in the garden of Sutton Park, Woodland trails, ploughed fields, abandoned airfield and country lanes. The perfect running conditions showed as the team achieved some excellent times.

Results: Anthony Hughes 43:34, Luke Duffill 47:11, Janet Potter 47:29, Justine Sutcliffe 48:10, Dave Foster 50:32, Liz Chapman Stevenson 50:46, Pete Royal 52:09, Jane Welbourn 52:17, Cath Wood 52:22, Julie Madden 53:33, April-Marie Exley 54:30, Booey Brown 56:09, Lyn Gent 1:02:19, Sandra Orlando 1:12:46
