Somerset Group Running Results & Future Events
The first race we did was the Frenchay 10k 17th April 2011, this is one of the countries oldest 10k races which is now in it's 31st year. The road race which attracted 700 applicants has three hard hilly sections with the last taking you up to the finish line. On a hot and sunny morning Nick Taviner (green watch Bridgwater 62) finished in an amazing position of 12th recording a great time of 40.15, myself (also green watch Bridgwater 62) finished 139th in a time of 48.16. Attatched photo shows us wearing the club vest before the start of the race, me on the left and Nick on the right.
Nick Taviner also raced on 26th April at the Bridge Inn 5k Summer series. This is the first of a series of 5k races which attracts a host of the top local club runners to compete along a 5k section of the Bristol cycle path. On a blustery evening Nick recorded a fast time of 17.50 to finish in 20th position against a strop field of 80 plus.
For yours and other club members interest I have listed a number events that me and others will be participating over the next few months so if others fancy coming along the more the merrier.

We want to hear from runners who have entered events for the club and in return we can offer funding towards races. In order to grant funding the club will require a write up after the event and some photographs so that we can share this with the sports and social association and other club members.
If you are thinking about entering an event please contact us as we would love to share this with other members and perhaps we can get more members entering events together.
