Weston Athletic Club member Kieron Summers won the Oldbury Power Station 10-mile race, knocking more than six minutes off his 2013 time.
Having run the race every September for the past five years, Kieron Summers proved that getting older does not mean getting slower, when he won the Oldbury Power Station 10-mile race.
Knocking over six minutes off his 2013 time, Kieron completed the course in 57.01, more than 40 seconds in front of his closest rival.
He was joined by 23 fellow Weston Athletic Club runners all eager to test their pace on the fast flat course ahead of the Bristol half marathon in two weeks time. Although a little damp, the cooler conditions were welcome, and 17 members ran their fastest times for the distance.
Darren Stacey was the second club member to finish, and sixth overall in 59.25. Richard Brent took third club spot in 1.04.29 and Neale Jarrett finished second in his age category in 1.08.37.
Nia Davies was third finisher in her category in 1.14.14. Jo Coveney followed in 1.20.38 to finish second in her category, with Michelle Fryer not far behind in 1.21.13.
Entry is now open for the club’s Christmas Cracker 10k which takes place on December 17. This year is the race’s 30th anniversary and anyone wanting to sign-up can enter online at www.westonac.co.uk/christmascracker
