Sheila Jones took a superb age group victory at the Blackburn Winter Warmer.

The Vet65 was among five Radcliffe Athletic Club members in the 670-strong field at Sunday’s popular 10k.

Also running were Paula Abernethy who was fourth V55 in 51:13, Karen Doherty (1:03:19), Sarah Rushton (1:09:25) and Natalie Hitchen (1:13:27).

Jones was presented with a cash prize while all the runners received a medal and a goody bag which contained gloves and a microwave pan!
