Pete Clark-Yalland was first to finish for the club in 3.05.48 and 23rd overall, followed by Chris Shergold in 3.22.39 and Dan Potter in 3.27.37.

Julia Withers crossed the line in 4.12.14 and Lesley Bowskill and Julie Shergold finished in 4.14.16 and 4.14.17. Julie’s time was more than 15 minutes quicker than her target time to enable her to gain a ‘good for age’ place for next year’s London marathon and also qualify for Boston marathon.

Weston Athletic Club dominate at the super half

Weston Athletic Club were out in force on Sunday to take on the inaugural Weston Super Half Marathon. No sign of the snow that thwarted last year’s event, the runners were rewarded with bright sunshine and gentle breezes to help them along their way.

First to finish from Weston, and third overall, was Kieron Summers in 1.14.44 which would be an excellent time in any event, but even more impressive at peak marathon training time. Chris Selman was next from the club to finish in 1.23.10 followed by Toby Norman in 1.24.21, with both clocking new personal bests... Read more
