IVANHOE Runners' Ruth and Jason Green ran the Margarita Ferrer Memorial 6k race in Majorca in temperatures of more than 30C.

They finished together in 29 minutes seven seconds. Ruth (pictured) was extremely pleased to finish first veteran lady and third lady overall, her first-ever podium finish.

The rather bizarre prize for this great result was a box of offal!

Jason finished 34th overall and sixth in his category. Jason's achievement was even more remarkable as he had cycled 500 mile from Yorkshire to Paris the week before to raise money for the charity Breast Cancer Care.

    Nice one! Id take any prize these days after plodding round the Westminster mile in just under a pathetic 7 minutes recently!
