Weston Athletic Club runners achieved personal best times at the Wimborne 10.

SIX intrepid runners from Weston Athletic Club travelled to Dorset to take on the Wimborne 10.

Other than a moderate wind, weather conditions were good, allowing for some impressive performances on the day. Started by a five musket salute, the 10-mile course is set on undulating rural roads.

Steve Kibblewhite was first club finisher shooting across the line in 1.08.46. Mark Bowskill, Simon Andrews and Pete Bartlett all achieved personal best times of 1.18.18, 1.18.41 and 1.33.08 respectively.

Lesley Bowskill knocked a massive eight minutes off her personal best time for the distance, completing the course in 1.29.35. Julie Shergold finished in 1.35.25 bettering her previous best by three minutes.
