It was his 159th Parkrun and only the third time he has finished first, and he shaved one second over his previous best time on the course.

It was just one of many excellent performances by Bridlington Road Runners members, writes John Edwards.

Perhaps the most impressive came from junior Annabelle Miller, who was 46 seconds faster than she has managed before, and was the first female finisher and 16th overall. Remarkable considering she is in the 10 and Under age category.

New BRR recruit Joanna Dagnan was third female in her first-ever Parkrun and there was also a huge personal best time for Jennifer Kilburn.

Phill Taylor was seventh in 20 minutes and 30 seconds, an impressive time but simply superb when you consider he was pushing son Jude in a buggy all the way around. Alan Feldberg and Martin Hutchinson landed places in the top 10.

There was also success for Road Runners in the Filey Lions 10k Beach Race on Sunday.

Scott Hargreaves was the winner in a time of 36:29 and Bridlington also claimed the team prize, thanks to the combined efforts of Hargreaves, Emma Richardson, Helena Bennett and Case Reece.
