Clevedon Athletic Club members have been racing in some stunning locations recently, both in the UK and overseas.

Jason Lammie took part in the Gower half marathon, a strenuous trail race around the coastal paths, beaches and moorland of this unique peninsula.

Clive and Sally Richards headed to warmer climes, travelling to northern Tenerife for the Santa Cruz half marathon. Congratulations to Clive who was first in his age group category.
