A wet and windy day didn’t put off the runners for the latest Easy Runner sponsored Bridge Inn 5k held on Tuesday 29th November 2011. There were 138 finishers with 31 of those members of Bristol & West.
Clear winner was Steve Davis of Belgrave Harriers in a quick 14:54 – there aren’t too many athletes who have gone sub-15 around the course. Behind him Bristol University Cross-Country Captain and Bristol & West club member Chris Dodd shaved another 12 seconds off his PB with a 15:13 clocking. Third was Joe Dalgleish (Stroud and UWE) in 15:29.
First under-17 in seventh place was Zak Tobias in 15:37 and first vet (actually a V45) was Mike Jacobs in 17:00. In the ladies race it was nice to see some new faces from further afield as Katie Beecher from Les Croupiers in South Wales won in 18:56 – twenty seconds clear of new club member Diana Kennedy in 19:16. Third lady (and first lady vet (an F45) ) was Bridge Inn regular Aileen Brown of GWR in 20:17.
Congratulations to Chris Elson and his team on another excellent event.
