Jay Ferns of Whitby led the way with a time of 32.57 minutes, with Arron Larkin from Rotherham following him in half a minute later.

Janet was the first club lady, however Emma Artley was very close running strongly in 45:41, with Zoe Ruston and Justine Sutcliffe also running well in 46:07 and 46:39.

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.
