A Weston running group attracted scores of racers to their first ever event.
Weston Whippets hosted the inaugural event, dubbed the Whippets Wake Up, on New Years Day.
The race, which started at Kewstoke Village Hall in Crookes Lane, saw more than 130 people take part in the 2km, 5km and 10km run.
Children of all ages were also given a chance to get involved through a 2km race along the seafront.
The fastest runner finished the 5km race in 25 minutes and the 10km in 35 minutes.
All the runners who finished the race received a medal and water, and the children under 12 received a goody bag, as well as prizes for fastest man and fastest woman.
