PH Racing Club’s Jonathan Peebles and Dan Monaghan did not have much recovery time from last Wednesday’s superb efforts at Corstorphine before racing again on Sunday.
Jonathan made the trip to Ayrshire for the popular Roon The Toon 10k in Kilmarnock, which this year boasted 1133 finishers. Once again, he put in an excellent performance to knock 12 seconds off his previous best, post a time of 34.37 and claim 6th place in a race won by Edinburgh AC’s Scottish international Neil Renault.
Meanwhile, Dan was “gannin’ along Scotswood Road” in his home town of Newcastle where he and Jennifer Caldwell took part in the annual Blaydon Race. This classic race is run over the unusual race distance of 5.67 miles and Dan put in a fine performance to finish in 64th place, from a field of over 4000, in a time of 31.44. Jennifer crossed the line in 47.08.
Well done to all three for their weekend of racing and thanks to Roon the Toon 10k for the race photo.
