Weston’s seafront was packed with hundreds of people at the weekend, as the town hosted its first half marathon.
More than 1,500 runners tackled the Weston Super Half yesterday (Sunday), which took in the sights and sounds of Weston’s coastline.
The entrants enjoyed perfect conditions for the race along the picturesque route.
The race was won by Colin Snook, of Cornwall Athletics Club, in a shade over an hour and 12 minutes, while the best local runner was third-placed Kieron Summers of Weston Athletics Club, who finished in a highly-impressive time of 1:14.
Charlotte Taylor-Green was the first woman to the finish line in fourth place, getting round in just 75 minutes.
