TWO long-standing records were broken at a remarkable renewal of a windswept Weymouth Bay 10K.

MCC Promotions have promoted an enormous 182 10k runs in the 13 years since its inception in 2006 and for the first time a female runner came in overall first place.

The hard-earned victory went to Hampshire runner Sophie Bubb from Lymington.

Bubb’s stunning pacesetting time of 40:30 knocked exactly one second off the outstanding female course record as the athlete, running in pink, took home the winner’s trophy and a new record to boot.

It was not a day for personal bests however, with the westerly winds posing plenty of problems for the legions of runners taking on the hilly, March competition.

Royal Manor Portland’s Dale Woolley 40:40, won the male run just 10 seconds behind Bubb, with Portland’s Dane Bibby joining Dale on the podium with a creditable third place.

Royal Manor Portland also won the team prize with the help of Woolley’s excellent podium performance.

Race promoter Mark Caswell would like to thank both Weymouth Council and the Riviera Hotel, for their support of the event.
