Sunday the 12th of April saw the annual Taunton Full and Half Marathon take place with the start and finish points at Somerset College of Arts and Technology, Wellington Road.

The Worshipful Mayor of Taunton Dean, Councillor Dave Durdan, was on hand along with the Lady Mayoress, Mrs Renee Durdan, Miss Taunton – Carnival Queen Imogen Stevens, Carnival Princess Kitty Burke and Jason Squire, Partner & Location Head from the Main Sponsors – Ashfords Solicitors in Taunton to make the presentations to the winners of the different categories.

In addition to the main Full & Half Marathons there were also two smaller “Fun Runs” for Children, those that were not in practice or those that just fancied having a go at a shorter course.

Taunton’s 97.3 Apple FM was there all day with our outside events Gazebo flying the flag and cheering on those talking part. Have a look through the 5 different albums below to see if you can spot yourself or someone you know!
