Fifth title for Kerry-Liam

Girvan athlete Kerry-Liam Wilson secured his fifth National title for this year with a course and season’s best time of 70:54 at the tough Dunfermline half marathon.

The race also incorporated the Scottish Half Marathon championships where Kerry-Liam secured the V40 title with a tenth-place overall finish, and a home counties Scotland versus England race, where he was the seventh-placed Scot and so claimed a good 14 Grand Prix points.

That points tally now sees him lead the Masters championships after three races with just two remaining.

Wilson said afterwards: “I suffered a bit on miles eight-12 with a combination of uphill and dehydration, even though I took fluids on board, but the weather was so clammy.

“It was a very competitive field so a top-ten place is a boost for me. I’m now sitting in seventh place overall for the Grand Prix, so it was well worth the trip and of course the National title.”
