The Bognor Prom 10k was a record-breaker with 1,531 finishers.
The popular annual race was won for the second year in a row by Tadele Geremew, who won last year in a record time and repeated the effort, setting a new course record of 30min 31sec.
Runner-up was Chichester’s James Baker in 32.27 and he was 49 seconds ahead of third-placed John Wadelin.
First woman home was Portsmouth’s Cassie Thorp in 34.42.
One of the organisers, Gavin Oclee-Brown, said: “It was a great day - there were no injuries, the rain held off until the race ended, at least for most, and we had really good running conditions.”
