Clare Jolliffe, 46, took on the British Masters 10 mile race in Poole last month, finishing in a speedy time of one hour, 10 minutes and one second.

Runners from all over the country took on the gruelling course, which features hills, a lot of mud and a few near-miss moments in cobbled country lanes.

Clare, a mum of two, runs for Bristol and West Athletics Club, and is a regular sight in Keynsham as she trains on the roads locally.

This was Clare’s first attempt at the distance and will hopefully be asked to compete again.

She took up running again just five years ago, after enjoying success as a teenager.  This is her fourth national medal and now has her sights set firmly on gold.
