Since his first Parkrun last June, 13-year-old Lewis Dale has risen through the ranks to reduce his best time by almost eight minutes.

On Saturday, he once again achieved a personal best time at Sewerby and secured fourth position, hot on the heels of Bridlington Road Runners’ senior man Nick Jordan.

Dale’s dedication and enthusiasm is certainly paying dividends.
