Secondís best for Weston runners

No strangers to victory, Susan Duncan and Chris McMillan had to settle for second place at the Charmouth Challenge on Saturday. The eight mile fell race starts at sea level and climbs over 1,600 feet to the highest point on the South Coast at Golden Cap. This yearís race was even warmer than usual, with little in the way of cloud or breeze to cool the overheated runners.


Often ahead from early in the race, Chris had to settle for following in someone elseís footsteps this year with a former UK Athletics trail running champion in the field. Chris crossed the line almost a minute behind him in 53.10.


Susan ran a very strong race to finish in 1.07.24, but again was up against strong competition with a high ranking runner from Totton taking part... Read more

Two wins in three days for McMillan while Duncan racks up four stellar performances in under a week

With three championship races to contend with and their own race to organise, all within six days of each other, last week was a busier-than-usual one for Weston Athletic Club.


Tuesday night saw the running of the unseasonably-muddy Beacon Batch five mile fell race, organised by the club. Starting and finishing in Burrington Combe, the race takes in over 1,000 feet of climb including a leg and lung-punishing climb to the highest point of the Mendips - the trig point on Beacon Batch. 84 runners completed the course, and two of Westonís own members achieved top three placings. Chris McMillan was first overall in 35.39, only two seconds ahead of the second placed runner from Wells, while Susan Duncan was third female overall in 44.55. Chris and Susanís efforts, accompanied by those of Toby Norman, Cameron Slater, Katie Gormley and Julia Withers earned the club the winning team prizes... Read more

Weston Athletic Club give it their level best

Representing over 10 per cent of the field, Weston Athletic Club members were out in force at this yearís Clevedon 10k, eager to set new personal best times on the notoriously fast flat course. This yearís race was much cooler than usual too, making for great running conditions, although breezier at times than some would have liked.


Chris McMillan was third overall in 33.58, followed by Kieron Summers in 34.32 taking sixth spot and winning his age category. Darren Stacey took third club spot in 37.08 closely followed by Allan Fuller 12 seconds later earning third place in his category.


Susan Duncan was fastest senior female with her strong 39.37 finish. Michelle Fryer was second club female in 42.19 followed by Nia Davies in 42.38, placing second in her category. Carol OíLeary bagged yet another age category win to add to her burgeoning collection with her finish time of 46.52... Read more
