Katie Grinyer from North Somerset Athletic Club, was the fastest woman, finishing in 40 minutes and 11 seconds.
A Weston Athletic Club spokesman said: “Congratulations to the participants of the Hangover 10km race.
“There were a hardy 191 finishers in this wet, but eventually sunny, start to this running year.”
The club’s next race will be the prom run on January 25 at 7.30pm.
