Congratulations to Jen Bishop who was the first home and to Kate Dewfall, Dave Roberts, Andrew Moorey and Jed Bartlett, who were taking part in their first prom run, with Jed finishing in an impressive second place.

The Burnham 5k was another popular event with members enjoying some fast times on the foggy night. Steve Wood was first home for Clevedon in 17.50, followed by Gary Lewis who ran a massive personal best time to smash through the sub-19 minute barrier to finish in 18.39.

Cross country took the team to a new venue in beautiful estate grounds of Charlton Park in Malmesbury. However, rain the night before meant that they were soon faced with a quagmire.

These great performances resulted in third place in the men’s vet team category.
