Athletes from PH Racing Club were among the prizes once again at Wednesday’s Brig Bash 5 Mile Road Race at Bridge of Earn.
Following on from last week’s win at the Milnathort Dash, the men once again won the team prize with Jonathan Peebles also scooping the 3rd place prize and a new club record of 26:40. The team of three was completed by Mike McConnell, who placed 5th in 27:10, and Dan Monaghan, 7th in 27:28.
Alison McGill also finished 3rd in an excellent club record time of 30:46 while Clare Graham (39:20) was the only other PH female participant.
Robert Sellar was the next PH finisher, and 2nd V40, just outside the overall top 10 in 27:56. He was followed by Darren Jubb (28:20) and Martin Butcher (29:06). The top 20 was completed by new recruit Bryan Innes on his PH Racing Club debut. Bryan timed at 29:52 having joined the club earlier that day.
Wright Beveridge just managed to stay ahead of V60 category winner John Crookston who continued his rich vein of form to improve his PH V60 record to 30:32, just 7 seconds behind Wright.
Joe Wilson (31:16), Martin McNellis (31:18), Dennis Howett (31:56) and Alan Cockburn (32:20) all enjoyed strong runs with McNellis placing 3rd in the V50 category. Also placing in his age category was Ian Johnston, 3rd V60 in a time of 34:27.
Well done to all and thanks to Perth Road Runners for a well organised race. Thanks also to Graeme Baxter, June Peebles and Jennifer Caldwell.
