Club Athletes Well to the Fore in Sodbury Slog

On a weekend that saw good club performances in the ParkRun and Gwent League, club athletes also took the honours in the Sodbury Slog at Chipping Sodbury on Sunday 11th November 2012. Olly Mott took an early lead that he never looked like relinquishing and he was followed home by Steve Mitchell and Steve Francis who came home in joint second place. All three are club members but were running in the colours of Bristol University Old Boys and Girls – it is a University tradition that athletes return to run the slog in fancy dress and this year was no exception as all three were dressed in devils outfits. The ladies race was won by Bristol & West’s Annabel Granger who was running in a club vest. Annabel was followed home by Olly’s wife Hilary – also in a Devils cotume. The ladies’ first three was completed by Philippa from Bristol University who, as an undergraduate, was dressed as an angel. Other club athletes notable for thier attendance were Stuart Price and Kim Whitlock.
