Wiltshire 10 Miles. Daniel Studley of Bristol & West AC shattered the course record taking victory in 49:34 with Florence Emond fourth lady. Dan returned from a two-week training camp in Portugal on Saturday and was reported to be really pleased with his performance. Since Christmas Dan has been training for his first half marathon so this race was a good step towards that as he has never raced further than 10k before. His target was to run at five-minute mile pace for the first seven miles and then open up and finish as hard as he could. Dan revealed that he will make his half marathon debut in the prestigious Hague event, in Holland (the same day as the Bath Half).  Results  1 Dan Studley 49.34, 15 John Rooney 58.09, Pete Clark (M40) 64.03, 68.09, 228 Andrea Goode (F40) 82.28, 245 Roger Brocklesby (M60 84.39), 345 Fliss Russell (F50) 98.21. Fliss took over 3 minutes off her previous 10 mile time from the Oldbury 10 last September.

Humdinger Half-Marathon. The Humdinger Half Marathon – an undulating (many would call it hilly!) road race with a Humdinger Hill thrown in the mix. Jane Colman and Alison Engledew added to their already healthy list of age group prizes. Results David Engledew (1:32), Jane Colman 1st FV45 (1:40), Alison Engledew 1st FV55 (1:45), Brendan Wilson (2:02)
