In photos: VIP guest welcomes home Burnham-On-Sea fun runners

Burnham-On-Sea's Olympic torch bearer Arthur Gilbert welcomed home more than 40 fun runners during a special race at the town's Half Marathon on Sunday.

Arthur, 91, who holds the title of the world's oldest triathlete, posed for photos with the dozens of admiring youngsters at the end of the event at the BASC Ground, as pictured here.

Arthur told "I'm always delighted to attend events like this which are all part of the lasting legacy of the Olympics. It's great to see smiles on the children's faces."

The mile-long fun run was held for younger runners whilst the serious runners were taking part in the 13 mile half marathon.
