Idris races to 5km win.
A record number of 277 runners from Bahrain and overseas took part in the event, in which the BRR utilised a chip timing system for the first time in a race in the kingdom.
The chip system allows automatic recording of race times ensuring accuracy and a more efficient race management.
Idris completed the race distance ahead of Tom Vaughan and Hazem Jassim, who were second and third, respectively.
On the distaff, Libera Caputo claimed first place amongst the ladies. Deena Rahman was the runner-up and Katherine Guinn finished third.
The five-km race will be followed by a 10km event this coming Friday.
The BRR Grand Prix Series will then culminate with a final 15km race on November 22.
Following all three races, each participant's times will be accumulated and winners in the various age categories will be determined.
