Kieron cracks course quickest

The weekend was a busy one for Weston Athletic Club runners who got to choose between two races in the clubís championship - the Hestercombe Humdinger and the Dursley Dozen.


The Humdinger is a half marathon with a twist at Taunton. Itís run on quiet country roads, but it is far from flat and features almost 1,400 feet of climb along its 13.1 mile route. Twelve Weston runners took it on, and all returned strong performances. Strongest of all was Kieron Summers who is showing huge commitment and discipline in his training for the London Marathon this year. Kieron averaged a six minute mile pace over the course to win the race in a blistering 1.18.54 setting a new course record in the process... read more

Tales of the Riverbank
