STEPHEN Paterson won the inaugural Severn Bridge Half Marathon on Sunday.

The event, organised by Rogueruns was successfully completed by 2,000 runners.

Having crossed over the bridge, the runners headed out towards Thornbury on the closed B4461, before doing a loop around scenic country lanes taking in villages such as Kington and Elberton, before returning on the pedestrian access-way of the bridge, back to Chepstow and the event headquarters.

Second home was James Bellward of Rafaa in 1:14:42, and third was Steve Davies from Belgrave Harriers in 1:15:07.
