Clevedon Athletic Club members have been busy recently in a variety of different races.

The race calendar is getting busy now, with Clevedon Athletic Club members taking part in a variety of events over the past week.

Jim Cahill, Nicole McMillan, Helen Ball and Simon Smith took part in the Crook Peak Cake Race, a challenging three-mile Category B fell race with 650ft of climbing.

Vicki Leckie competed in the popular Severn Bridge 10k. The course took everyone over the bridge with a short loop before running back over the bridge with a final push, tackling a little hill into the finish at the event village.

Torrential rain with poor visibility prevented any appreciation of the views, but despite the weather the atmosphere was really good with many supporters out along the route.

On the same day, several club members took part in the local Cleeve 5k Road Relays, which incorporated the Avon County Championships.

The men’s team ran four legs of the route, around the lanes and footpaths of Claverham and Cleeve. The ladies entered two teams, with each team running three legs.

The men’s team of Jed Bartlett, Steve Wood, Lee Southernwood and Clive Richards were placed fifth overall and third in the senior age group, with Simon Hawkes representing the club in the V60 category. Special mention to Jed who was the second fastest male in 16.18.

Laura Meech, Francesca Rawlings and Helen Wood had a great race in difficult conditions and took home the prize for the first female team in the Avon Running Challenge.

Kerry Coombes, Elaine Heyes and Sally Richards also collected prizes for first place in the FV35 group.

If you want to join in with the success of Clevedon Athletic Club, please come along to a training session, full details on the website: www.clevedonac.co.uk
