Ruth Jones continued her winning streak when crossing the line as first lady in The Monster Half-Marathon at Ely on Sunday.

The course suited Jones’ penchant for the unconventional and included stiles and cattle grids. The 37 year-old Nene Valley Harrier battled her way round in 1:33.51.

“I’ve won another race” Jones stated. “I couldn’t be happier, half off-road, boiling hot and windy, a real test of character on the Fens.”
