Men's Captain Spreads the Word

On 18th September 2008 Men's Captain Shaun Burton competed in the first of the Weston Prom Runs, an annual series of 9 five mile races covering two laps of the famous Weston-super-Mare promenade. The races are held every third Thursday between September and March. The race involved dodging pedestrians, dogs, street furniture and runners coming back the other way, but given the width of the pier this did not provide Shaun with a problem. The only thing that did affect Shaun's time was the 180-degree turns he had to make along the route. Shaun finished 113 out of 193 finishers with a time of 37:00. The next race in the series is on 16th October 2008. Good luck Shaun with race number 2.
