In-form Rebecca races to victory

REBECCA Awde continued her recent good form by finishing first woman in the Sundays Hill 10k road race last night.

The Bristol & West AC runner clocked 40:39 in 17th place overall of the 223 finishers with Jane Colman runner-up in 27th (42:38) and Louise Cronin third (43:16).

The win follows personal bests in the Brighton marathon (3:22.01) and the Bristol 10k (38:52) earlier this year.

Overall victory went to Ciaran McQuade in 34:54 from Nick Smart (35:15) with both runners claiming to be members of the new Bristol & West Ringers – but clearly not bell ringers one assumes? Rob Farley was third,
