The Hedge End Running Club athlete was first home in a time of 17:49, ahead of club-mate Dave Henson (18:26).

Winbourne has enjoyed plenty of success at Whiteley down the years, with this being the eighth time he’s broken the tape in 73 trips to take on the course.

But his time of 17:49, which was enough to secure first spot in the latest Whiteley parkrun, was some way short in his best-ever finishing time at the event (16:54).

Nikki Moxham, who led the way in the female section, continued an impressive run of high-placed finishes at the event.

The Gosport Road Runners member was fourth overall (19:39) meaning she has only finished outside of the top five once in her 10 visits to the venue – the other was a seventh placing in February last year.

Cameron Wilford, who came home in fifth (19:41), is now just one parkrun away from a century of events completed.

This was the 31st time he has taken to the Whiteley course, now he will be planning on where to bring up his personal milestone.

n Zippy Grice was once again forced to settle for second position in the Fareham parkrun.

The Portsmouth Triathletes runner came home nine seconds after first-placed finisher Matthew Brown (18:02) in the latest event.

It continued a run of runners-up spots for Grice, with this being the fourth time in as many visits he has secured second place.

Fareham Crusaders’ Luke Adderley completed the top three, crossing the finish line in a time of 18:20 in his home event.
