30 under 30 for Weston AC

Conditions were perfect for the 30 Weston Athletic Club members who lined up on Burnham’s esplanade to take on the November 5k race organised by the Swim and Sports Academy. The club dominated the race, accounting for almost half the field.


Kieron Summers was first from the club to finish, and second overall, battling against two junior runners from Taunton for his podium place. His 16.38 finish was only two seconds off his PB set at the same race last October. William Fuller and Phil Tomlinson were the club’s second and third finishers and both earned themselves new 5k personal best times of 17.20 and 18.32 respectively... Read more

Kieron Summers was the next club member to finish, sixth overall and first in his age category in 27.26, and Ian Connock took third club spot in 28.36. .. Read more

Staggering storms on Exmoor

The tail-end of Storm Brian set the scene for the 21 Weston Athletic Club runners who braved this year’s Exmoor Stagger on Sunday. As if 3,500 ft of climb off-road from sea-level at Minehead to Dunkery Beacon and back wasn’t enough, runners also had to contend with 45mph winds with lashings of hail and rain mixed-in as they reached the summit....
