The Second Bridge Inn 5k of the Summer 2012 Series was held on Tuesday 29th May 2012 using the usual course but from the new Race Headquarters at the Pomphrey Hill Sports Centre. The new venue was a great success and it was rather a good night for the club with 6 in the first 7 to finish. Steve Francis who in horse racing parlance would be what is know as a course and distance specialist was first Male in 15:58 just over a minute outside his best ever over the course. Nikki Brookland was first lady home in 17:53 and first M40, M45 and M50 and first W45 were all members of Bristol & West, altogether the club provided 33 of the 126 finishers. There were numerous PBs posted and Sarah Everitt (19:33) and Carron Downer (19:41) both deserve a special mention as both won their age groups as well as running big PBs.

The Third race in the Summer Series will be held on Tuesday 26th June 2012 when the Race Headquarters will again be at Pomphrey Hill.
Pete Davenport the Race Recorder has been rushed into hospital for an operation – hence the delay in getting the results out – we all wish Pete a speedy recovery.
