Bristol’s greatest long-distance runner, Nick Rose, sounded the horn to start this year’s Thornbury 10k which was another sold out race from the organisers at Thornbury Running Club.

The undulating course along country lanes featured the testing climb over Sundayshill Lane at the mid-way point, before heading back to the finish at Thornbury Rugby Club through Rockhampton village.

Maciej Bialogonski maintained Bristol & West AC’s stranglehold on the men’s race by winning in a time of 34:02 mins with a winning margin of almost 4 mins. The women’s race was won by Westbury Harrier’s Sophie Voller in 40:48 mins.

Thornbury’s Dylan Roberts continued his run of good form by finishing 4th overall in a field of 316 runners in 38:40 mins. Taryn Roberts (Dylan’s sister) was also near the top of the race, finishing in 3rd place in the women’s field and 19th overall. Laura Orna was one place behind Taryn in 4th place and 29th overall in 44:47 mins.
