The Mayor and Mayoress Andrew and Sue Backhouse started the race before completing the gruelling course themselves.

Matt Hewison from the Scarborough & District Sports Council was delighted with how the event went.

He said: “The Yorkshire Coast 10k is a fantastic event and a real highlight of the town’s sporting calendar.

“The event has an impact on many different levels; it gives people of all abilities the opportunity to participate in a high profile athletics event.

“Chris Clayton and the members of Scarborough Athletic Club deserve a great deal of praise for the delivery of the event that continues to thrive.”
