In the men's field it was Robert Calthorpe to claim first place, after surgery on his heart earlier in the year a brilliant effort over a tough course and slippy conditions around Danes Dyke.
David Foster came in second place followed by one of the newer club members who joined this year, Damien Probett.
With driving winds on the cliff tops for the weekly Sewerby parkrun it did not deter a hardy 123 runners from braving the elements to complete the event.
