The volunteers ensured everyone was well supported and cheered to the finish of the 5k along the promenade.

In total 499 people completed the walk, run or jog.

Lewis Banner and Angela Richardson were the first finishers in difficult weather conditions on Saturday morning.

It was a very strong wind for the parkrun making it tough to get personal bests.

Charles Cope celebrated his 100th parkrun.

John Pratt, Charlie Catling and Luke Purshouse all finished their 50th to achieve the milestone.
