Peel Road Runner Robert Donovan clocked up marathon number 71 in his last pre-Christmas outing at the Newark Showground on Sat 16th Dec.
Bob struggled in the week building up to the event with a niggling back problem but determined as ever he battled through to complete the 26.2-mile course in a time of 5:25:59hrs, finishing in 39th place overall. He can now look forward to a short rest before continuing his quest after Christmas for 100 marathons.
Last weekend was also race number 2 in the Derby / Staffs Winter Cross Country league. The final results are not available at the time of going to press but there were some excellent performances once again from the Peel Road Runners Men & Womens teams. Results will hopefully be ready to publish next week.
Merry Christmas to all our members and runners everywhere.
Peel Road Runners meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm at the Snowdome in Tamworth.
