Woods turns back the clock to claim a rare race victory in Avebury

AlecWoodsIT has been a while since Alec Woods basked in the glory of victory butt the 51-year-old Bristol & West AC runner admitted his victory in the Avebury 8 miles multi terrain race was a sweet moment.

“It is the first race I have won as a 50-year-old, in fact it is my first win for a long time!” said Woods.

“I was runner-up in the recent Marshfield Mudlark and third in the Over The Hills event but I can’t remember the last time I actually won a race outright.”

Woods has picked up numerous age group category prizes along the way but for actual race victories the last one I can find in the record books is the Standish Woodland Chase 10 in August 2012.
