There was a win for Clevedon Athletic Club at this year’s Blaise Blazer event.

Many congratulations go to Jed Bartlett who finished first in a fantastic time of 21.58. The course is approximately four miles and takes runners on the hilly paths and tracks around the grounds of Blaise Castle estate.

Three other members to compete in the race were Andy Shaw 28.25, Andy King 35.37 and Elaine Heyes 37.29.

Four Clevedon athletes headed to the beautiful village of Lacock to race at the weekend. The event includes numerous race distances taking in multiple laps around the village and countryside with a ‘wet feet’ or ‘dry feet’ option at the ford.

Fran Rawlings finished the three-lap half marathon event in 1.33.26, a fine run to secure second in her age group and third lady overall. Fran was closely followed home by David Kelly in 1.34.46. Chris and Donna Davies completed the two-lap 10k event in 51.56.

The Chew Valley 10k is described as a road race on rural undulating lanes, set in the backdrop of the Mendip Hills, with a challenging hill halfway round.

Congratulations to Jeanne Fairs who finished in 50.14, second in her age group and to Vicki Leckie finishing in 51.31.
