Belgrave Harriers Tish Jones was pleased with her third place finish in the women's race of Bupa London 10,000m on Sunday.

The 28-year-old clocked 33 minutes 38 seconds, while Gemma Steel dominated throughout to win in 32:53, with Stevie Stockton coming second (33:36).

"It was a brilliant race," said Jones, who also ran in Manchester and UK 10,000m championships during the past two weekends.

"The atmosphere was amazing; it pulls you through and helped me to feel fresh after two weekends of competition.

"I want to do another 10k on the track and a 5k at the UK championships, so this helps. My endurance is there but speed always needs work especially while I've got youth on my side."
