ELLIE ECCLES has produced a memorable victory and personal best.

The West Cheshire Athletic Club distance runner achieved a new personal best time of 18 hours 38 minutes four seconds at the Gloucester Invitational 100 miles race to win the women’s title.

Ellie rounded the Blackbridge Jubilee Athletics Track, averaging two minutes 47 seconds per lap and 79 seconds for her final lap.

The over-40 distance-running ace covered 37.78 miles in six hours, 66.37 miles in 12 hours, and 50 miles in 8:02.37, before reaching the 100km mark in 11:07.45.

WEST CHESHIRE AC’s management committee has decided that all Club training sessions are now cancelled until further notice to avoid any confusion about the national lockdown rules and to keep everyone safe.
