Show Girl's Albanian Adventure

Lizzie Adams, who dazzled at Dufton Show last month, was in the mountains of Albania this weekend representing Great Britain in the World Mountain Running Championships. You'll find the best report here on the Mud Sweat and Tears website but Fell Running Briefs had our international news hound at the race with her camera.

Maybe Lizzie hadn't trained for absolutely every obstacle that came her way on the race but she managed a brilliant 5th place and helped her team win the bronze medal, as did Emma Clayton who was 10th. The full results are here.

The trials for this race were held in Witton Park in the mountains of Blackburn, the organiser rightly said "if they'd wanted building sites we could have provided any number"
