Victoria Wilkinson competed in the European Mountain Running Championships, representing Great Britain last weekend, in Porto Moniz in Madeira.

Victoria ran a fantastic race to finish sixth, helping GB women win team gold with Emma Clayton third, Rebecca Robinson ninth and Annie Conway 11th.

Victoria, who works as a sports therapist at Denise Park’s Physiotherapy Clinic in Clitheroe, has now won three team golds and competed in eight European Championships over the last 10 years.

The course this year suited her, being very steep through woods, climbing up steps before opening out onto a plateau to finish the last couple of kilometres on fast running tracks.
