Luke Reed ran the Yeovil Easter Bunny last Monday and this was the triathletes first road 10k without the swim and bike for quite some time, writes Dave Mutter.

He ran in 20th and was very pleased with his time of 37:50.

Other AVRs to be on the start line were Joshua Hopson, who finished 46th, 41:16, another very good performance, and William Watson, 152nd, 48:30, and also third junior male.

Another AVR members, Roger Bramley, has been doing a couple of different runs recently, he did Bath half marathon at the end of March in an impressive time of 1:41. This was all part of his training schedule for the Paris Marathon on Sunday. Although it was a steamy 21 deg. Roger managed to run a great time of 3:49:00 and felt good, loving the amazing support and atmosphere of the crowds. Bien fait!

Four club members made the long trip up country to Reading for the Berkshire town’s half marathon.

Billed as the fastest half-marathon in the UK, the mainly flat course made for some good times. Jake Smith was the first of the AVR finishers, coming 30th overall out of more than 14,000 finishers in 1:11:41.

Young Ollie Caute then excelled in his first half-marathon finishing 318th in 1:25:17. Tony Smith was the next AVR finisher, 1,157th, 1:37:16 and Sam Miller was delighted to break the two-hour mark taking 1:59:16, the 4,916th finisher.

Those old warhorses Steve Reynolds and Geoff Woodward pounded around the Taunton Marathon with Steve producing a brilliant result finishing 68th in 3:40:50 and Geoff not far behind 101st, 3:53:46. Emma Kiernan produced the fasted time in the associated half marathon, she was 120th in 1:37:41 which must be close to her personal best. Gavin Warren was 548th, 1:59:18 and Steven Maclure, 663rd, 2:06:21.
