Runners approach the finish line in the 2016 Bradley Stoke 10k.

A field of 548 runners contested Sunday’s Bradley Stoke 10k, organised by Sole Sisters, on the final day of the 2016 Bradley Stoke Community Festival.

Entries for the popular event, which has its start and finish at the Jubilee Centre, had sold out on 31st March, more than two months ahead of raceday.

Local residents turned out in force on a bright and warm morning to support the runners as they followed the multi-terrain route along the pavements and tracks of  Bradley Stoke.

Victory in the men’s race went to Maciej Bialogonski (Bristol & West AC), in a time of 34:11, comfortably clear of 2015 winner Ciaran McQuade (North Bristol Running Group, 34:42) in second place, followed by local youngster Adam Wilson (Yate AC, 35:04) in third.

McQuade’s performance also secured the special prize for the top-finishing Bradley Stoke resident.

First home in the women’s race, and seventh overall, was Helen Newberry (Bristol & West AC) in a time of 37:19, almost two minutes ahead of second-placed Rebecca Awde (Bristol & West AC, 39:07) with Elizabeth Smith (Westbury Harriers, 41:29) in third.

Maciej Bialogonski approaches the final turn to clinch the race in a time of 34:11. Helen Newberry takes the final turn to win the female category in a time of 37:19.
