12th Scottish Gas 5k & 10k races: results & photos

Thanks to all who helped organise, sponsored and took part in yesterday’s 5k & 10k races.  Despite some strong winds blowing away(!) the chance for PBs on the course, the sun shined and runners finished with smiles on their faces. A full report will be available in the next few days.

We have results for the 10k race at the moment, with 5k results expected this afternoon. The top three in the 10k were:

1 Amanuel Hagos (Shettleston H) 31.07
2 Matthew Graham (MJ) (Kirkintilloch Oly) 32.17
3 John Newsom (Pitreavie AAC) 32.21

And in the 5k were:
1 Zak Boukelia (Unatt) 16.21
2 Neil Calder (Edinburgh AC) 16.35
3 Jeff Farquhar (M35) (Pitreavie AAC) 16.51

Full results are now online here.  For anyone having problems, here are the direct links:
