BRIDLINGTON Road Runners scored a treble at the Driffield Striders annual Mucky Duck multi-terrain race.

Phill Taylor, winner of the first Hull Marathon last month, finished the 8.5 mile course in 47:12 – just nine seconds more than his 2011 time.

He had been gradually getting closer to the event record of 46:08 but Sunday’s sweltering temperatures and a punishing course, with bumpy uneven sections, stopped him making further inroads.

First woman in 59.21 was Taylor’s team-mate Emma Brown and age group prizes also went to Karen Colley, Janet Potter and Angelika Corner.

The event attracted 202 runners. An accompanying one mile fun run was won by 12-year-old Shaun Foster, also from Bridlington RR.
