The Frome Running Club contingent at the Southwick Parkrun was led over the line by Gary Eagle in 18mins 45secs.

Robin-Mark Schols completed the 5k course in 19:16, 13 seconds ahead of Lee Stone. Graham Farley set a PB of 24:19 and Judy Bryant came home in 29:31.

The club was represented at two events the following day, chasing puddings rather than medals.

The Full Monty-Cute 10.5- mile off-road event at Stoke sub Hamdon boasts ten hills in ten miles and there was Frome interest in three categories.
