GLOUCESTER AC runners were on fire at the Guy Fawkes Five Mile race, achieving a host of personal best times.

Matt Powell was the first City runner home, finishing in 20th in 30 minutes and 54 seconds to equal his PB.

Gemma Collier was next to finish, in 29th place.

Her time of 31.21 was an improvement on her best time by 48 seconds, with Max Sheppard also reducing his PB with 31.54.

Club middle-distance coach, Kerry Newell, finished in 97th place in 35:37, nearly two minute faster than her last attempt at the distance, while in 111th place Denise Evans set a PB with 36.21.

V60 Dave Spackman placed 142nd in 38.27 and the team was completed by V50 Mike Anderton in 293rd with 51.55. Gloucester AC's Arthur Daley took first prize in the M60 category at the Pomphrey Sports 5k event in Bristol.

Returning from injury, the Gloucester veteran placed 56th in 20.06 minutes to knock 54 seconds off the time he set four weeks ago on the same course.

Nicola Hovey was 97th overall and third in the L45 category in 22.44, a PB by 21 seconds and Vaness Anderton was 128th in 37.11.
