Barking Road Runners enjoyed success in the sixth leg of the ELVIS Interclub series at Barking Park last week.

Some 176 runners participated, comprised mainly from the seven competing teams, but also individuals from further afield.

Daniel Moses of Orion Harriers was the overall winner, clocking 15.52.

Second place went to Daniel Bradley in 16.03, with Malcolm Muir third in 16.52. Ray Dzikowski was the first male veteran, also recording an impressive time of 17.28.

The first woman across the line was Katharine Gundersen of Woodford Green & Essex Ladies in 18.25, while Kate Malcolm wasn’t far behind in 18.38 to claim the first veteran woman prize.

The sixth Barking parkrun – a free event – was completed on Saturday.

In a much smaller field Dave Cox took the victory, running the 5k in 17.53.

James Lowndes of Barking Road Runners held second spot in 19.05, closely followed by Sam Jackson in 19.07.

Jordan Lacey was first the placed woman in 21.42, the second lady home was Amanda Heslegrave, with third going to Vicky Cooper of Barking Road Runners. They ran 22.01 and 23.17 respectively.

The other finishers for Barking Road Runners were Ronald Vialls, in a very respectable 20.14 for the age group (60-64), Micky Ball in 30.47 and Lisa Ward in 36.44.
