Sewerby Parkrun is part of the worldwide Parkrun phenomenon, which has seen events spring up all over the UK and in a host of other countries as well.

Other nearby Parkruns can be found at Hull, York, Harrogate, Scunthorpe and Leeds and, while Sewerby cannot compete with the huge weekly fields at the bigger city events, on Saturday morning, more than 70 runners competed.

Martin Smith put in another good performance to finish third in a time of 19:35. Following not too far behind, was Simon Ellerker in sixth position with 20:50.

Two Bridlington Road Runners members had personal bests. The first was Ashley Porter, who smashed his best time by 27 seconds, finishing in 15th place with 22 minutes.

Also running well was Danny Manson, who reduced his best time by a full minute, to complete the course in 23:27.

Congratulations should also go to local runner Peter Royal, who celebrated his 50th Sewerby Parkrun with an excellent time of 23:17, which easily beat his previous best time.

Other Bridlington RR runners taking part were: Kevin Sissons (21st) 23:18, Ray Robinson (24th) 24:08, Adam Fairest (28th) 24:53, Ben Smith (29th) 24:57, Mandy Holah (39th) 26:41, Kirsten Porter (41st) 27:00, Simon Porter (42nd) 27:01 and Amanda Tindall (50th) 29:37.

Somebody else putting in a PB performance was Andy Baker who completed the York Parkrun in 14th place in a time of 19:10

Three members of Bridlington Road Runners ran in the multi-terrain Escrick 10K race near York at the weekend. Peter Gulc finished the race in fifth place and, although the official results have not been published yet, runner’s watch times were Gulc 36:54, Andy Baker 41:00 and Sarah Wood 43:20.
