Weston Athletic Club members took part in a six-mile off-road race at Wrington.

A SIX-mile off-road circuit set the scene for Weston Athletic Club’s members for the Wrington Woodland race.

The route includes some lengthy climbs and descents to challenge runners, but Weston’s teams came out fighting, despite many of the participants having completed marathons in April.

The club’s men and women each took second prize in the overall team standings, and several members placed in their age category.

Nick Briffitt finished fourth overall, and first in his age category in a time of 39.20. Pete Clark was next to finish for the club in 40.17 and Andy Chadburn took third spot in 41.07.
