In photos: Records rumble during 5km Burnham-On-Sea seafront run

Mild temperatures and calm weather provided ideal conditions for the 68 runners who took part in a race on Burnham-On-Sea seafront on Thursday night (April 2nd).

Records tumbled during the 5km event, which was the final race of six held on The Esplanade over the winter months.

First home was Bristol runner Tim Wallis who completed the course in a time of 15 minutes, 43 seconds - a new record.

And the first lady across the finishing line, Chloe Felton from Tiverton, also smashed the womens fastest time by setting a new record of 18 minutes and 49 seconds.

Organiser Martin Rogers, from Burnham Swim and Sports Academy, told "We're delighted with how our winter series of runs has gone - it's been well supported by athletes from across the region."

"We are already looking forward to the start of the summer series of seafront runs, which begins on 2nd June and continues on 6th July and 4th August." Entry details are available from the sports academy in Berrow Road.

The runners completed three laps of a 5km course, from the Tourist Information Centre to the Yacht Club along the seafront

Runners of all ages and abilities have been taking part in the regular running events
