England call-up for Clare at British & Irish Masters showdown

EARLIER this week we reported on the fat that Jenny Spink had been selected to make her debut for Great Britain at the World Half Marathon Championships next year.

Now another Bristol & West AC runner has received international honours with Clare Jolliffe selected to represent England in the British & Irish Masters Cross Country International, in Dublin, on November 14th.

Jolliffe, who is coached by Dave Taylor, has recently switched to the 5k distance (encourage by training partner Charlotte Green) and it proved an inspired decision as this year she has run away with the Midland senior 5k title and won a silver medal in the National Masters championship.

“This selection proved that hard work and perseverance can be rewarded and puts the icing on the cake!” said Taylor.

“Clare is such a hard working athlete and a positive role model for the younger ones.”
