It was the third biggest Southsea parkrun so far as 441 people completed the 5k on Saturday.

Dan Slayford got a new personal best for the course as he finished first in 17.38.

It was a strong showing from the University of Portsmouth athlete who was comfortably clear on the way back to the finish after the turn point.

Even though the wind made for a testing second half of the parkrun he managed to keep his pace going well and finished strongly.

Matthew Salt, who is a member of Dacorum & Tring, finished in second position while Daniel Cripps was fourth with a new personal best of 18.55.

Harriet Irving, of Waverley Harriers, also got a new best as she ran 19.48 to finish first lady.
