Organiser, Michael Brennand, said: “Last weekend saw the City of Preston road races take place with nearly 400 runners from Scotland to the South Coast, many running to raise money for charity, assembling to race an exact 5 mile loop starting and finishing at Walmer Bridge Village Hall.
“There were two distances, with a 5 mile race and a two lap 10 mile race starting together at 10am.
“Bright sunshine greeted the participants on raceday with the weather hotting up as the race went on.
“There were personal bests throughout the field with the fast, flat course proving very popular with the runners.”
In the 10 mile race, Gary Priestly of Salford Harriers was the first home in a speedy 52:54, winning the race by over four minutes on his way to a new personal best.
