Vet Martin leads the way
Martin Broadhead (Hallam-shire) won the Bridlington Half Marathon in impressive style. The Hallamshire man had almost a minute to spare over consistent Punlani Bangani, the Scunthorpe based runner who won the race last year.
Broadbent's win was remarkable as he is a veteran in athletic terms and took the Yorkshire Half-marathon championship which was incorporated in the race..

Damien Nicholls (Wilmslow) was an easy winner of the Rother Valley Trail six-mile race at Rother Valley Country Park.
