ASHFIELD Chad reporter Catherine Allen donned her running shoes on Sunday as she took part in the Sherwood Pines 10km trail race.

Catherine, who completed the run in 60 minutes, is raising money for Chad’s MRI Scanner Appeal and used the race as preparation for when she competes in the Robin Hood Half Marathon on 30th September.

Speaking after Sunday’s race, Catherine said: “Doing a shorter race is good practice and it really motiovates you.

“It was a tough morning because it was so hot. I also had to contend with flies and blisters from my new trainers!

“But it was a lovely course - it was all off road and the trees provided some welcome shade.”
