YOUNG­STER Sian Hes­lop con­tin­ues to go from strength to strength in her run­ning ca­reer after yet more suc­cess.

The 14-year-old only started run­ning three years ago after coach Anna Carey from Mac­cles­field Har­ri­ers spot­ted her tal­ent at a lo­cal school cross coun­try race.

Her achieve­ments have started to add up, hav­ing rep­re­sented Cheshire and Mac­cles­field on many oc­ca­sions she was also part of the North West team at the London mini marathon ear­lier this year.

She re­cently won the Na­tional road re­lays with her team mates Lau­ren Robin­son and Stephanie Moss for Mac­cles­field Har­ri­ers, but her big­gest achieve­ment came last week­end when she won the ju­nior great south run in Portsmouth.

She ran 2.5 km in just eight min­utes and six sec­onds, beat­ing the sec­ond placed run­ning by 11 sec­onds.
