Almost 200 hardy athletes took on the Beverley Lions Club annual New Years Day Fun Run this year raising hundreds of pounds for charity.

The huge turnout this year meant over £700 was raised for the Lions local charities.

It wasn’t just locals who pulled on their trainers for the 21st annual event, runners from several countries including one as far away as New Zealand took part.

There were three distances for runners to choose from, ranging between three and 10 kilometres.

The 3k event, which had 40 runners, was won by Oliver Truby from Norwich followed by Owen Walker and Oliver Johnston from Beverley.

The 6k run was won by James Bainbridge of Beverley, followed by Natalie Cooper and Luke Beecroft.

Over 120 runners lined up for the 10k race, many from athletics clubs throughout the region. It was won by Peter Baker from Anlaby followed by Tim Davies from Newcastle University and Jim Rogers of Willerby.

Lions Vice District Governor Ian Sagar and Pocklington Lions president Judy Sagar were delighted to present all the runners with a medal on completion of their races.

Beverley Lions Club would like to thank all the runners and their supporters who made the day so successful and express their gratitude to the large number of volunteers who cheerfully turned up to act as marshals around the course.
