Entries for the popular event, which has its start and finish at the Jubilee Centre, had sold out on 7th March, more than three months ahead of raceday.
The weather was bright, yet not too warm, as the runners followed the multi-terrain route along the pavements and tracks of Bradley Stoke.
Both the men’s and women’s races saw repeat victories for the 2016 winners, with both shaving a few seconds off last year’s times.
Victory in the men’s race went to Maciej Bialogonski (Bristol & West AC), in a time of 34:07 (4 seconds faster than 2016), well clear of second man Daryl Phillips (Bristol & West AC, 37:05), followed closely by Stephen Honight (unattached, 37:11).
Honight’s performance also secured the special prize for the top-finishing Bradley Stoke resident.
First home in the women’s race, and an impressive second overall, was Helen Newberry (Bristol & West AC) in a time of 37:00 (19 seconds faster than 2016). The second woman to finish was Louise Cronin (Great Western Runners, 43:07) followed by Kerry Whitton (Great Western Runners, 46:39) in third.
