Weston Athletic Club members took part in the annual Round the Tor 10k with Kieron Summers finishing fourth overall.

Sunday’s record breaking temperatures were great news for most, but not so much for the two dozen Weston Athletic Club runners taking on the annual Round the Tor 10k road race at Glastonbury.

The heat and lack of breeze made the going particularly tough on the hills and many runners felt the effects, struggling in the closing miles of the race.

Kieron Summers showed no signs, however, of struggle, and achieved a time in striking distance of his personal best. Kieron’s time of 34.34 saw him finish fourth overall, and first in his category. This puts him in a strong position to do well at the flat Clevedon 10k race next month.

Richard Brent was next from the club to finish in 40.41, and Steve Kibblewhite followed just over a minute later in 41.53.

The race proved successful for the club’s fastest females, whose times enabled them to claim the women’s team prize. Michelle Fryer was first to finish in 44.54 and third senior female overall.

Nia Davies followed in 45.43, also placing first in her age category. Niki Fulstow’s 47.53 earned her a third place category spot.

The next race organised by the club is the final prom run of the season on May 24. The main five-mile race starts on the seafront near the Tropicana at 7.30pm and is preceded by the one-mile junior race at 6.45pm.
