Experienced veteran, Steve Cooper, who runs for Blackheath & Bromley Harriers, was second in 17:33, just four seconds ahead of third-placed Neil Parry (17:37), who was a first-timer at Kesgrave.
Jayne Chappels, of Kesgrave Kruisers, was first lady in 21:02, just 10 seconds short of her PB at what was her 147th parkrun.
Sarah Lewis, of Woodbridge Shufflers, equalled her PB of 21:16 in second, followed by Collette Green, of Woodbridge Shufflers, in third (21:59).
