Weston Athletic Club members tackled a new Tough 10 route.

A NEW Tough 10 route awaited over 800 runners, taking them from Weston beach to Sand Point, before returning through Weston woods and back into Weston.

The weather was perfect for running, last year’s high winds prevented the race from going ahead.

There was no stopping Dominic Taylor-Jones, who once again took the honours for the club in 1.05.55 and 13th overall. Alex Barker, a newcomer to the club, ran strongly to take second place in 1.07.18, followed by Guy Bradford in 1.08.54.

With 24 club ladies competing in the event, Jules Pflaum took first place in 1.19.51. There was only five seconds between the second and third club females - Michelle Fryer in 1.22.49 and Nicola Fulstow in 1.22.54.
