CHARITIES ranging from Cancer Research to Children’s Hospice South West were supported by hundreds of runners on Sunday morning.
The annual Weston half-marathon saw runners take on a gruelling 13.1-mile course involving the Grand Pier, the seafront and the toll road to Kewstoke.
James Rodgers from Clevedon took the honours completing the race in one hour and 13 minutes but all the competitors were cheered on by friends, family and neutrals.
Local runners impressed on home soil with Weston Athletics Club’s Chris Old finishing third overall and only one minute behind the winner.
Two of the club’s runners, Nick Cook and Stuart Haynes, bravely took part just 24 hours after finishing the triathlon.
