In photos: 170 runners complete Burnham-On-Sea Half Marathon

Over 170 runners completed Burnham-On-Sea's annual Half Marathon on Sunday (October 5th) during ideal running conditions.

Winner Nathan Young from Wells City Harriers, right, cut the finishing tape in a fast time of one hour, 11 minutes and 59 seconds.

He said he was "delighted" to have won and said the good weather had provided great running conditions.

A crowd of spectators cheered on the runners at the start of Sunday's race at the BASC Ground. The runners headed along Love Lane and Queen's Drive, before turning along the A38 towards Brent Knoll and then on to East Brent, Lympsham, Wick Road and Red Road, before returning to Burnham.

The first Burnham finisher was town doctor Stuart Anderson from Burnham Harriers running club in a good time of 1:33:04.

Burnham's Sue Nicholls, right, completed the race in a time of 1:41:47. She was named the UK's top female half marathon runner in her age group, as we reported here last year.

Among the other local runners was Colan Walker (1:34:22), Kevin Clements (1:42:21), Lisa Wood (1:43:30), Ian Rogers (1:44:29), Caroline Davies (1:44:37), Matt Powell (1:45:55), Linda Rogers (1:47:27), Phil Strange (1:47:30), Karen Phillips (1:47:57), Kathy Williams (1:50:00 ) and Simon Windram (1:53:22).

Full results in the adults half marathon are listed here.

A further 39 young runners also took part in a successful one-mile fun run at the event. Full Fun Run results are listed here.

Organiser Brian Beale from Burnham Harriers Club told "We had a late flurry of 60 entries due to the good weather and were really pleased with the turnout - it was a great run and we've had positive feedback."

"We also thank our sponsors, Highbridge's M5 Glass and Proper Job of Burnham, for their support."
