Tales of the Riverbank

Sunday saw the start of the 2018 off-road racing calendar for 21 of Weston Athletic Club’s members. The Riverbank Rollick is a nine mile race across fields, through woodland and along the River Severn with a fast downhill finish into a final stretch through a stream

Conditions for this year’s race were better than in previous years with less mud to battle through and only a light wind. This helped many of the club’s runners to get impressive course bests. Fastest member was Rob Furlong who completed the course in 1.02.45. Matt Wheeler followed him over the line in 1.04.36 taking second place in his age category in the process. Phil Tomlinson took third club spot in 1.05.40... Read more
