U Centurion Cath Duhig has been elected as "Female Master-of-the-Year" in the Mercia Region (Spain).
Her award is to be received at a Gala Presentation in Cieza. One wonders where this talented, enthusiastic and committed athlete keeps all her many medals, cups, plaques certificates and prizes, as they just keep on coming!
Cath won similar sporting awards in East Anglia, and now they're being presented on mainland Europe! Cath qualified as Centurion 986 at Newmarket's Rowley Mile course in 2003, clocking 21:27.43 when finishing in 8th position (3rd lady) wearing the colours of Ryston Runners.
In 2005 Cath was a prominent Organising Committee member when the UK 100 miles Championship was staged at King's Lynn.
