Jim Munro showed the 200-plus strong field a clean pair of heels in Sunday’s Sprotbrough 6.5km road race.

Runner-up twelve months earlier, the unattached Sprotbrough runner posted a time of 23.51 minutes despite the blustery conditions in the race which was the feature event of the 67th Doncaster Scout Group’s annual fund-raising gala.

Karen Kidney (30.04) repeated her 2012 success in the women’s race.

John McGrath (30.02) won the boy’s 8-11 race with Karen’s daughter Eleanor (34.43) again taking the honours in the 8-11 girl’s race.

Doncaster Athletic Club’s John Micklewaite (25.12) led the way home in the boy’s 12-15 race. Kayleigh Allison (38.59) won the girl’s race.

Joanne Wales (33.49) won the women’s 16-39 race with Melvin Wallace (24.34), second overall, claiming the men’s 40-59 prize.

Ernie Davis (34.06) claimed the spoils in the men’s over-59 race.

James Watkinson (34.57) took the Scouts’ prize.
