Ammanford hosted its annual 10km road race on Sunday.

The Ammanford 10K Road Race, which has been running more than 20 years, is organised by Amman Valley Harriers and incorporated the West Wales Road Running Championships for the first time and nearly 300 runners turned out to take part.

Event Organiser, Rob Davies said: “The 2018 race has been a great success. We had online entries for the first time this year which has proved to be really popular with 275 runners.

“The heat made it tough going which certainly warranted the extra water stations.

“Thanks to our 3 sponsors Ammanford Lions, Llys Cennen Solicitors and Brecon Carreg.

“Next year’s race is set to be even bigger.”

Matthew Rees (Swansea Harriers) took this year’s win in a time of 33 minutes and 49 seconds.

His club teammate Marc Hobbs followed in runners up spot (34:31) with Port Talbot Harriers’ Ben Williams crossing in third (35:03) to make up the top three and win the West Wales Road Running Championships medals in the process.

Rhodie Jones (41:09) was the first female back home followed by Michelle Cole (3M Gorseinion RR 42:20) and Wendy Price (Carmarthen Harriers 42:41)
