Three girls who are members of Corsham’s One Mile Club have been presented with trophies for running 100 miles over 100 weeks.

England Athletics coach Martin Rush, who has represented GB, presented the trophies.

One of the girls, Jade Littlechild, joined the club when she was seven. When under 13 she was 20th in the UK for the 1,500 metres and first in Wiltshire.

This season she has run successfully across country, and represented Corsham School in the SW region biathlon (running and swimming) and reached the national finals, which will take place at the Olympic Park in April. Another of the three girls, Zöe Stansfield-Cox, aged eight, is the youngest to have received her 100-mile trophy.

The third girl to receive the trophy was Sheila Scotford.

Recently Christopher Sapiano, 12, became the first young runner to receive a 175-mile certificate.
