A dozen runners from Weston Athletic Club took on the Fully Monty Cute race organised by Crewkerne Running Club.

Twelve runners from Weston Athletic Club braved the mud to take on the 10 miles and 10 hills of the Full Monty Cute race organised by Crewkerne Running Club.

The route begins and ends on the top of Ham Hill and during the race this year runners encountered more than their fair share of cloying and slippery mud to sap their energy before tackling hill after hill.

After just over 1,500ft of climb and looking decidedly muckier than when they began, the dirty dozen eventually climbed their way back to the top of Ham Hill to cross the finish line.

First to do so was Chris McMillan, who remains on great form race after race. Chris was second overall, and received a beautiful trophy made of local ham stone for his efforts.

Chris completed the race in 1.08.31. Matt Wheeler was next, and finished in 1.23.39, also securing himself second place in the club’s 2017 off-road men’s championship in the process. Stuart Diamond followed three minutes later in 1.26.58.

Fastest female for the club was Michelle Fryer, and she crossed the line in an impressive time of 1.39.55. Helen Diamond followed in 1.57.06 and in doing so secured victory in the women’s off-road championship this year.

Shaleen Summers and Vanessa Andrews crossed the line together with Jim Wotton in 2.04.16, having kept each other motivated during the race.

Although it was only Chris who received a trophy, all finishers took home a Christmas pudding to enjoy over the coming festive season.

The next race organised by the club is the fourth prom run of the season on December 14. The main five-mile race starts on the seafront near the Tropicana at 7.30pm and is preceded by the one-mile junior race at 6.45pm.
