Championships in Spain. Veteran (o/40) Joasia, GB’s sole runner, finished 61st overall, was 3rd Woman and 1st Veteran thereby winning also a Gold Medal for her brilliant effort, and recording an excellent time of 7hrs 41mins 48secs, which equates to 4.37 mins/per km, she was only 10 mins down on her personal best time set last year of 7hrs 31mins 33secs.
