Fifty hardy competitors took part in the fun run on day two of Lyme Regis lifeboat week and defied the wind and rain that caused the postponement of other events.

Competitors ran a 2.3k course along the seafront.

It was a family success for Alexander Thiele, 55, and his son Thomas, eight, holidaymakers from Newcastle.

Alexander won the adult section of the race and Thomas was the first under nine-year-old to complete the course.

The first over nine was Jack Braddock, a holidaymaker from near Peterborough.
