Mary Western’s terrific run of form continued on Sunday at the Carluke On The Run 10k where she finished as 1st lady and 11th overall in a time of 41.42 and some considerable distance ahead of the next female finisher.
This race came three weeks after Mary ran a time of 87.34 at the Run Hackney Half Marathon. That run was enough to rank her 2nd for 2017 for her age category and 9th on the UK all time list. It has also helped her attain the overall ranking of 4th in the UK among female V55 road runners on Run Britain Rankings. Everyone from PH Racing would like to congratulate our newly appointed women’s captain on these remarkable achievements.
On Tuesday, fellow travelling PH athlete Jonathan Peebles made the trip to the Vindolanda 10k near Hexham in Northumberland and earned a spot on the podium with a second place finish. Jonny’s time of 38.34 for the hilly course put him some way ahead of the third place runner although Paul Rogan of Moray Road Runners also enjoyed a healthy cushion leading the runners home in 37.08.
Well done to all runners and thanks to Kevin Ramage, Run Nation and Bill Duff for the race photographs.
