Shona runs 99th marathon in Valencia

A trio of Lothian Running Club endurance athletes were in Spain at the weekend to take part in the 38th Trinidad Alfonso EDP Valencia Marathon. The first of the three home was Paul Young who crossed the finish line in 3 hours 19 minutes 25 seconds which was a PB, he beat his previous best of 3:19.30 by a mere 5 seconds which he set in the Edinburgh Festival Marathon back in May. Paul was followed home by his sister Shona who stopped the clock at 3 hours 29 minutes 12 seconds. This was Shona’s 99th marathon and she hopes to reach the milestone 100 mark in the Hong Kong marathon in February. Completing the LRC representation was Stephen Malcolm who completed the 26.2 miles in 4 hours 6 minutes 43 seconds.
