Having missed his usual Loch Ness Marathon for the first time this year, Johnny Cassells headed for the sunnier climes of Spain where he took part in the Valencia Marathon on Sunday.

With months of hard, high mileage training behind him, Johnny was able to maintain a strong pace the second half and finish in 2.54.16, only just outside his personal best set at Loch Ness last year.

Elsewhere Mikey Combe placed third in the Larnaca International Half Marathon in Cyprus in a time of 1.25.26.

Well done to both Johnny and Mikey on their excellent runs.
