Last local run of 2014 for Frome runners

THE AVR Wiltshire Half Marathon, held in Edington near Westbury, offered the last opportunity in the local area for Frome Running Club members to grab a personal best time or, failing that, a best time for 2014.

And lots of runners in red, yellow and black did bag their best times on the undulating course that is marshalled and organised by members of local Wiltshire running club, Avon Valley Runners.
