Fitness fanatic Sergeant Shelli Gordon ran her way to victory last week when she was the first woman out of the ladies who participated to cross the finish line at the 11.2 mile PSUK Police National Fell Race.
Shelli, 38, is from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit and has competed in many running races in the past and over the years she has raised thousands of pounds for charity.

The race took place on Wednesday 18th May from Cod Beck in Osmotherley and followed a route past the Lyke Wake Stone, then back across, towards and up Black Hambleton, Square Corner, Oakdale and then back into the woods to finish at the reservoir.

Shelli also competed for the third time in The Hardmoors 160 Mile challenge which took place on Friday 29th April to Sunday 1st May. 

The challenge took her an impressive 41 hours and 22 minutes to complete.

Speaking of her achievement, Shelli said: “This year the route was different as it was in reverse because of Tour de Yorkshire.

“I felt really good after the race and I even took my daughter to a horse riding event the next day – and I returned to work the day after that!

“I love to run and I love to challenge myself as it gives me chance to think in the peaceful countryside and I love the adrenalin you get from competing.”

 Shelli is also planning to compete in the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc in France in August which is 160km and 30,000ft of ascent.
