The second round of this season’s East Yorkshire Cross Country League saw Bridlington Road Runners men’s and women’s teams take third place.

On a revised route, because Welton Dale was closed for emergency tree work, a strong contingent from the Bridlington club tackled a course of around 6.6 miles, writes John Edwards.

The runners in the points in the men’s race all eased under the 45-minute barrier, to continue Bridlington’s impressive start to the campaign.

Danny Brunton was 10th, with Phill Taylor, James Briggs and Tom Mullen all contributing to the Bridlington club’s total.

Jo Dagnan led the Bridlington ladies home, finishing fifth in 48:39, with April-Marie Exley and Mim Ireland also in the points.

After two races, Bridlington’s men remain third after and the Brid women move up one place to third after two races.

The next race is at Wetwang on Sunday December 12.
