Clevedon Athletic Club member Alex Crossland started the new year in fine form, winning the Hangover 10k at Kewstoke.

Clevedon Athletics Club athletes got their running year off to a great start at the Hangover 10k in Kewstoke on new year’s day.

Although conditions were wet at the start, Alex Crossland put in a fantastic performance, winning the race in 33.07. He was closely followed by Luke Murray (third place and 1st V40) in 33.57.

Other results: Steve Wood 37.23, Tom Abrahams 40.25, Joanne Gallagher 42.00, Nick Hides 44.35, Clive Richards 44.35, Kate Millard 45.00 (PB), Mike Andrews 48.14, Sally Richards 49.05.

Several members travelled down to Yeovil to take part in the chilly South West Cross Country Championships. This top-quality event was held at Aldon Hill country park and provided an interesting course with good conditions underfoot and several tough hills along the way.

Congratulations to Jed Bartlett, who was first home for Clevedon in 19th place and to Luke Murray who was second in the M40 category. Luke was also selected to run for Avon and was awarded a medal for second-placed team in the County Championship competition.

Other competitors were Steve Wood, Martin Hewlett, Clive Richards, Tom Abrahams and Joanne Gallagher.

If you would like to join in with the success of Clevedon Athletic Club, please come along to a training session, full details on the website.
