PORTISHEAD Running Club members Matt Crocker and Charlie Hurcum claimed runners-up spots in the Burnham Winter Esplanade 5k series.

There were a series of six races which took place between October and April with a break in December. They are organised by Burnham-on-Sea Swimming Pool (www.bospool.com)

Over the set of six, the Portishead pair were placed second in both the senior male and senior female categories.

Crocker set a personal best time in the final race of 17 minutes and 44 seconds, while Hurcum is recovering from an injury which has plagued her for much of the winter.
