Weston runners go down a storm

Storm Ciara put paid to the weekend’s running events with races called off across the country due to the strong winds.


Fortunately for Weston Athletic Club’s runners the week’s racing calendar wasn’t a complete write-off with Burnham 5k race beating the storm and going ahead as planned.


Conditions looked to be ideal with a cool calm evening setting the scene for the fast, flat race. And for eight of the club’s 17 runners, it proved to be so, as they set new personal best times for the distance...Read more

Just for men at Slaughterford

It was a small and select group of five, all men, from Weston Athletic Club who travelled to Wiltshire on Sunday for the Slaughterford 9. The off-road race, organised by Chippenham Harriers, is notorious for its mud, freezing dip in a stream along the way, and punishing final hilly climb all the way to the finish line.


Kev Bale achieved a top ten finish placing seventh overall with his impressive time of 1.01.03. Shane Connolly took second club spot in 1.28.58 while Paul Snelling won his age category, crossing the line in 1.33.44.


The club’s next races take place on Weston’s prom on Thursday 20 February with two junior one mile events ahead of the main five mile race at 7.30pm. More information on the club’s website at www.westonac.co.uk/promrun...Read more

Duncan claims victory at Gloucester

It was back to the tarmac last week for Weston Athletic Club’s members, leaving the mud behind for a while. With two races on offer in the club championship runners took their pick between the five mile prom run and the half marathon at Gloucester, or both.


Sunday saw ten club members travel to Gloucester for the half marathon, part of the club’s championship for the first time. Racing conditions were ideal with a gin-clear sky, cool temperature and little in the way of breeze which resulted in some fast times on the largely flat course.


Susan Duncan won the women’s race in a new personal best time of 1.23.36. Vicki Wilkins was second club woman in 1.55.36 with Kate Rossiter third in 2.02.15...Read more
