History was made as over 5,000 runners and fundraisers took part in this year’s Asda Foundation City of Lincoln 10K on Sunday including one in record breaking time.
Lucian Alisson became the fastest finisher of any Jane Tomlinson Run For All 10K in their 12 years of organising running events.
His time of 29 minutes and 29 seconds was a full 54 seconds faster than the previous record set in 2017.
Joe Wilkinson was not far behind Lucian as he took second place with a time of 30 minutes and 16 seconds. Kris Lecher finished third in 30 minutes and 17 seconds.
Abbie Donnelly was the first woman home in 34 minutes and 30 seconds followed by Cloe Hubbard who clocked 34mins 35secs for second spot. Becky Briggs finished third in 34 minutes and 53 seconds.

The popular race weekend also featured the Arena Group Lincoln Mini and Junior runs which took place on Saturday.
Hundreds of excited children aged 3-15 pulled on their trainers for the runs at the Yarbrough Leisure Centre and left with a new medal and a smiling face.
Tens of thousands of pounds have been made for charity after the race which started on Riseholme Road on Sunday, April 7. All the profits of the event will also go to charity.
Run For All’s Head of Events Tristan Batley-Kyle said: “This run is the first of our 2019 season and what a way to start.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone – runners, supporters and especially the volunteers – who turned out to ensure the City of Lincoln 10K was another enjoyable and memorable day.”
Co-ordinator of the Asda Foundation Mandy Hepworth added: “We were treated to another wonderful City of Lincoln 10K today. The atmosphere was superb and congratulations to everyone who took part, particularly those raising money for some excellent good causes.”
