Nick is the British Masters 10k road race champion


GRAPPENHALL runner Nick Jones, aged 44, became the 2018 British Masters 10k Road Race champion when he won the Trentham 10k road race, on an extremely hilly course in Stoke-on-Trent.
On a blistering hot day and an undulating course, he went into the lead at the half way point before pulling away to win the race in 34 minutes 10 seconds – more than 30 seconds clear of the second placed athlete.
It was the third British Masters title this year for the Grappenhall runner, who is also the 5k Road Champion and the 10,000m Track Champion.
The Warrington Athletic Club member was joined by four other club members who were also competing in the British Masters 10k Road Race championships.
Colin Bishop, who lives in Helsby, was next in from the Warrington club, finishing in 16th place in 38 minutes 03 seconds, taking the British Masters silver medal in the over 55 age group competition, just one place and six seconds behind the gold medalist.
Grappenhall based David Gill, was next to finish in 56th place in 41 minutes 31 seconds, finishing in 5th place in the over 60 age group of the British Masters competition.
Next in was Helsby resident Dave Norman in 76th place overall with a time of 42 minutes 53 seconds, to place 5th in the British Masters over 55 age group competition.
Mervyn Ward, from Cinnamon Brow, finished just three places behind Dave Norman in 79th place in 43 minutes 25 seconds to place 8th in the British Masters over 60 age group competition.
And it was British Masters team gold for Warrington Athletic Club with Colin Bishop, Dave Gill and Dave Norman winning the British Masters V55 Team competition, with Dave Gill dropping down to the over 55 category to help the team to win the gold medals.
