After her excellent club record in the London Marathon, Tish Jones returned to Cape Town where she now lives, and after a short period of recuperation tackled two big local road races with amazing success.
On the 28th May she won a presigious 12km Road Race held in the Centre of Cape Town in a time of 39.50. Latching onto a group of male runners she passed 5km in 16.07 and equalled her best at the 10km mark in a time of 33.05. Below is the photo of her finishing the race.
Just a couple of weeks later on June 11th, she won the first of a series of women only races sponsored by SPAR giving the opportunity for athletes to collect points for the series.
In a hotly contested 10km race, the pack of top women athletes from all over South Africa stayed with her until halfway. Then Tish was able to push ahead and had extended her lead to half a minute at the finish in an official time of 32.58 which is now her pb.
Tish plans to do a half marathon this summer and we look forward to more news.
