Weston AC in pursuit of glory

The annual mob match 10k along the Avon Gorge towpath attracted a smaller field of runners from Weston Athletic Club this year with many choosing to rest ahead of the Seaview race a couple of days later. Niki Fulstow and Paul Cousins were the first female and male club runners to finish in times of 45.51 and 42.44 respectively. Second and third club male spots went to Rob Mountford and Joe Withers in 42.57 and 44.40. Jo Coveney was second club female in 48.26, followed by Vicki Wilkins in 52.24.


Sunday saw a race of a very different nature with 23 of Weston’s runners lining up in the rain for the start of the Seaview 17. The race covers 21 miles of hilly terrain from Countisbury near Lynton back along the coast path to Minehead. Kieron Summers ran an extremely strong race to finish less than 30 seconds behind the overall winner in an impressive 2.39.04. Matt Wheeler ran his quickest time for the course yet in 3.00.06, followed soon after by Josh Harris in 3.03.42. ... Read more

Weston AC in pursuit of glory

The ongoing heatwave has continued to make for challenging conditions for Weston Athletic Club’s racing members with two off-road championship races to contend with in the past week.


Thursday saw the second of the Town and Country Harriers summer series events - the Purdown Pursuit - a six mile, undulating off-road route around the Stoke Park Estate in Bristol.

In the end, it was Rob who took the spoils with a 21 second advantage over Matt, finishing in 43.09. Matt did however win his age category. Bill Green took third club spot in 47.48 enabling the men to take the race team prize as well... Read more
