Bridlington Road Runners
Sewerby Parkrun 5K: February 9
IT WAS a lovely bright sunny morning at Sewerby on Saturday but it was very icy underfoot which made the paths treacherous to run on.
Despite this, a good turnout of runners made light of the conditions although personal best times were not an option.
Leading the way home was Phill Taylor in first place and a time of 18:13.
In second place was Mark Woodley with 22:18. He was closely followed by Simon Ellerker in sixth place in 23:30.
Father and son Simon and Ashley Porter finished in 10th and 11th places with Ashley beating Simon by five seconds in a time of 24:28.
Mark Loft had another good run finishing with 27:04 in 17th position.
Kevin Sissons and Stuart Atkinson also ran but were concentrating on mentoring other runners. Sissons finished 23rd in 29:21 and Atkinson was 32nd in 38:03
Hull Parkrun 5K – 9th February
IT WAS also icy over in Hull where Dave Playforth finished 25th in 21:08.

BY CONTRAST, it was extremely muddy at Welton for the fifth race in this season’s East Yorkshire Cross Country League which made it very hard going.
