It was a colder, damp start to Saturday morning but this did not deter the Road Runners turning out to the weekly Sewerby Parkrun 5km.

A number of runners were dressed in Halloween fancy dress and even more achieved frighteningly good times.

Josh Taylor was third on the day in a new personal best time of 18:43, dropping under 19 minutes for the first time.

Sandra Orlando, dressed in a cobweb tutu, also achieved a PB of 31:39 and junior Libby Harper also ran well to get a PB of 34:40.

Bill Pike had another good run finishing ninth in 20:32.

Battling it out was Michael Hirst and Mark Woodley, who finished 14th and 15th in 21:27 and 21:30, with Simon Porter close behind in 18th in 21:36.

Patricia Bielby was the club’s first lady on the day in 25:16.
