Sunday 7 Sept saw the return of Paul Wellings to competition at the Chippenham Half.

Whilst not as hilly as it might sound the Haresfield 10K is a challenging course and certainly not one to expect to PB on. A good turn out from the club fielding 5 runners in a field of 103.

Further North on 14 Sept, two Dursley Runners were improving their chances of a high placing in the Glos AAA Road Race Series at the Bugatti 10K.

Dursley Runs Bristol

The Bristol Half Marathon had a strong turn out from Dursley Running Club, with six members running the popular city half. A brisk north easterly wind cooled the runners as they worked up the Portway and then pushed them towards the finish in the city centre.

A good field turned out to Severn ACs Festival 7 Mile Road Race on the last thursday of July. With Ray and Mel Williams turning up for the club. Mel Was first lady home and first in her age category completing the distance in 55.09 leading from start to finish. Ray came in 11th in 51:07. Mel carried away the biscuits for her efforts.

On the same night Rockhampton Fun run enticed three runners form Dursley, Chris Gaze finishing 4th in 24:15, Chris Ashworth 23rd in 31:02 and John Spicer 33rd in 33:42
