Congratulations to all Westbury Harriers who took part in this tough and muddy race, but particular plaudits to:

– Ben Rawlins, who finished 2nd man overall, a day after running in the Gwent League U17 race at Brecon! Ben’s fine form continued recently at the 3rd Weston 5 mile Prom run, where he finished in a hugely impressive 10th place in 27:35.

– Sophie Voller, with a very strong run to finish as 2nd place lady

– Anthony Glover, 4th man overall, and 1st V40M.

DB Max Castle Combe Chilly 10K – 19th November 2017



An impressive Westbury showing in this fast 10k race, involving three long laps of the Castle Combe Race Circuit.

Very well done to young Aidan Noble, still an U17 athlete but first Westbury Harrier home in 10th place overall, in a time of 35:03. He was closely followed by Alex Hamblin (12, 35:21) with Aidan’s dad Richard Noble in 19th (38:15). Well done also to Lizzie Smith (5th female, 55th overall) and to Patricia Howard and Nicola Derrick.


Special mentions also to guide runners Ed Gould and Phil Robson, who successfully guided their visually impaired runners Diane Bentham and Stephen Skidmore to impressive times.
