More than 800 runners flocked to Weston-super-Mare’s beach and woods for a gruelling 10-mile challenge.

The Two Bays Tough 10 took place on Sunday and raised money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The new course used sections of Weston beach, Sand Bay and roads along the promenade.

The 807 runners faced an added challenge through Worlebury Woods, where they were cheered on by family and friends.

The men’s run was won by Luke Murray, from Clevedon Athletic Club, in one hour, one minute and 35 seconds.

Oli Beale from Westbury Harriers finished six seconds later, followed by Lee Rankin from Stroud and District Athletic Club.

Elizabeth Dyson was the fastest woman, finishing in one hour, seven minutes and 27 seconds.

Although the runners did not struggle too much with the rain, there were plenty of muddy puddles for them to navigate during the morning.

A one-mile fun run for children also took place on Sunday.

A spokesman for the run said: “Another successful race day.

“The Two Bays Tough Ten race committee would like to thank all our marshals, sponsors and runners for making a great event.”

Runners turned out in force from Weston Athletic Club, but plenty came from further afield, too. The field included participants from Exmoor, Birmingham, Stroud and Chippenham.
