Although everybody enjoyed the warmest weather of the year but not so with the runners.
The temperature soared to 22C with humidity of 47% in Great Hatfield and 3 runners were overcome with the heat. This is still proved to be one of the most popular shorter runs in the north of England.
The top prizes of the day went to Richard Buckle of Hornsea School team and Sara Rookyard, a non-afilliated runner for first places in male and female, respectively. First place in the Over 70 vet male went to Vic Shirley, and Pam Atkins of Beverley AC for the Over 70 female. An exceptional prize for over 80 goes to Robert Thomson of Haltemprice RRC.
