Bourton Roadrunners dominated the field over the weekend at the annual Fairford 10km road race.

The race is hosted each year by Running Somewhere Else (RSE), a Cirencester-based club, coincides with the Fairford Festival and is part of the Gloucestershire AAA Road Race Series.

Leading the charge was Bourton's Alex Pye, who clinched first place, clocking a time of 38 minutes and 25 seconds.

Trailing closely behind, veteran runner Darren Long finished in 39.29.

Roadrunners best woman in the race was Niamh Shoemark, who won the first lady vet-55 prize with a time of 42 minutes and 55 seconds.

Among the other runners at the event were Dougal Hamilton-Smith (43.21), Graham Lane (49.15), Lorna Shawcross (51.59), David Rees (52.16), Louise Hamilton-Smith (57.08), Imogen Cox (65.25), Sharon Rees (69.24), Julie Smith (72.33), and Jenny Evanson (73.13).

Linda Edwards also ran, with the second-claim member clocking in at 57.40, representing the host club RSE.

Earlier in the week, she also competed in the Stroud Beer Race, covering just over seven miles of meandering terrain around Minchinhampton Common in 70 minutes and 11 seconds.

"I don’t even like beer". Edwards quipped after the run.

In other news, mountaineering enthusiast Ian Tolfts represented Bourton at the Settle Saunter.

The 10-kilometre event took place along the footpaths and bridleways of the lesser-known parts of the Yorkshire Dales.

Tolfts blazed through the challenging course, nabbing second place overall and first veteran in 63 minutes and 55 seconds.

Members of the club also graced various parkrun venues across the country, including Brundall, Chipping Norton School, Cirencester, Dulwich, Evesham, and Lydiard.

Outstanding performances were turned in, most notably Eva Shoemark, who topped the female 20 category in Dulwich with a brisk time of 19.28.

Additionally, both Dougal and Louise Hamilton-Smith clocked course personal bests at Lydiard, with 21.13 and 29.44, respectively.
