Seven Weston Athletic Club members took part in the Slaughterford 9 in muddy conditions.

A SERIES of tough off-road races awaits many members of Weston Athletic Club over the next few weeks with this weekend being no exception.

Seven members took part in the Slaughterford 9 in cold, muddy and very hilly conditions.

Dominic Taylor-Jones raced superbly taking first place for the club and third senior male overall in 58.11. There was only 23 seconds between Guy Bradford and Matthew Wheeler who took second and third for the club in 1.06.02 and 1.06.25 respectively.

Vanessa Andrews was surprisingly the only lady running for the club in the event finishing in 1.40.00.

The club’s next race is the Weston prom run on February 26. The main five-mile race starts at 7.30pm, and is preceded by the one-mile race at 6.45pm.
