Throughout Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, runners of all ages and abilities, including some of the club’s juniors, ran between two and 20 miles – checking in on social media and then passing on the baton virtually to the next team-mate, writes John Edwards.

There were more than 60 legs over the four days, with some running individually and others in pairs or family groups.

Boys captain Ben Edwards kicked things off alongside the ‘queen of Bridlington Road Runners’ Linda Hall, and girls captain Becky Miller ran with the king of the club, Bob Eyre for the final leg, before members enjoyed a hog roast at Wold Top Brewery.

There was also plenty of non-virtual events over the weekend, including the Top of the Wolds 10k from Warter, which is notorious for its long, steep hill near the start.

The 10-strong Bridlington team was led home by Emma Richardson, who was 56th overall and third female over 40. Paul Brown was BRR’s fastest man and third over 70, beating the hour-mark comfortably, while Linda Hall was fastest female over 70.

Further afield, Road Runners’ Danny Brunton headed to the Lake District for the Montane Ullswater trail 20, where he finished fifth overall and first over 40, in a shade over three hours.
