Redcar’s Ben Wear established a new record when he completed the seven-lap course of Adwalton Moor near Drighlington on Sunday in 44minutes 28seconds, lapping the rest of the field in the process.

He won the 10,000m race by 16 minutes from runner-up Colin Scott of the Yorkshire Race Walking Club.

Wear, 23, is one of the brightest prospects on the UK race-walking scene and is making the National 50kilometre championship his aim in October.

Result: 1 Ben Wear (Redcar Race Walking Club) 44.28, 2 Colin Scott (Yorkshire Race Walking Club) 60.32, 3 Dave Crompton (Lancashire Wakling Club) 60.48, 4 Neil Armitage (Yorkshire Race Walking Club) 63.33, 5 Russ Jackson 64.17, 6 Neil Cole (York CUI) 64.31, 7 Alister Shand (Yorkshire Race Walking Club) 67.15, 8 Mark Byrne (Redcar Race Walking Club) 68.58, 9 Keith French (Yorkshire Race Walking Club) 76.38, 10 Mick Nicholson (Hull City AC) (6 laps).
