More than 40 local runners paced across the sands at Berrow this week during the annual Burnham Beach Race.

Organised by the Burnham Harriers running group, the 10km multi-terrain event was won by Steve Masters of Wells in a fast time of 35 minutes and 18 seconds.

A spokesman for the Harriers told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Weather conditions for this year’s event were ideal, making it good for both the runners and spectators.”

A total of 44 runners from across the West country took part in the popular event.

These photos show John Shapland from North Devon finishing the race strongly in fourth position, supported below by a group of spectators who included well-known local athlete Arthur Gilbert.

Burnham’s next main running event is the town’s Half Marathon, which this year will be held at 11am on Sunday October 1st.

This will be followed on Sunday November 26th by the gruelling 5.5 mile Brent Knoll Run, which starts at 11:30am.
