Last weekend Kate (pictured left) was on England duty at the IAAF Cross De Atapuerca meeting in Burgos, Spain and against a top class field, boasting some good Africans, she finished eight and top Brit.
“Kate is in excellent shape and that is another solid performance,” said coach Chris Frapwell.
Also on the trip to Spain was Stroud & District AC junior Zoe Wassell, who was making her debut for England and ran brilliantly to finish runner-up.
“I am on such a high!” said 17-year-old Wassell. “I just cannot believe I ran so well, I am so happy.”
