Dam tot Damloop Road Race

Jonny Mellor finished 10th in a strong international field over 10 miles in the Dam tot Damloop road race in Holland earlier this month.

Jonny clocked a season’s best 48:15 in a race won by Kenya’s Edwin Kiptoo in a world lead of 45:25.

In an interview with the Liverpool Echo Jonny said: “It was a tough race, the first 2km was downhill so I found myself stuck between going with the Africans or sitting back with the other European athletes. After 10km the race had slowed so I decided to take the pace on within my group and ended up running the final 6km on my own. I’m pleased with my position in the race as second European but I would have liked to run inside 48 minutes.”
