Clacton Seafront parkrun staged its 99th event on Saturday morning, and so will celebrate its landmark 100th parkrun on the promenade this coming weekend.

Paul Game, of Haverhill RC, was second with 19:41 for the fast 5K route, a little way off his personal best for the three-lap course of 19:12.

Kieran James was third (20:27) and Ray Baggs, of Great Bentley RC, registering 20:30 in fourth.
