Easter Sunday saw the opening race of this years Scottish Athletics Grand Prix road race series at a very sunny Strathclyde Park where the Tom Scott 10 mile race was chosen again as the series opener attracting some of the best runners in the country for where there were National and District medals up for grabs.
Amongst those in attendance was Kerry-Liam Wilson, a regular high scorer in the Grand Prix over the years it’s been held. Kerry-Liam who recently smashed his half marathon PB was hoping to record a decent time but a chest infection leading into the race curtailed that but he still had a decent enough run to finish 10th overall which was good enough for second Master in both the Scottish Athletics National Championship and the Scottish Athletics West District Championship.
He also helped Team Cambuslang to the National Team Gold medal along with Robert Gilroy and Steve Wylie. Kerry-Liam said: “I knew from the start it would be very difficult to win the Masters title as not only I wasn’t at my sharpest today, David Millar was also untouchable but I’m happy enough to have ran 52:22.
“I also scored points for the Grand Prix although I’m not targeting it like I have in previous years.”
