Share this article

On a cold and blustery day Girvan runners made their way south for the Stranraer 10k road race and two came away with top honours and one with a course best time.

Conditions got tougher at the 4k mark when the runners reach the highest point in the course with the wind very strong and the hailstones came on too for a brief moment too.

Stephen Flanagan secured first M40-44 prize with a time of 43:46 and Kerry-Liam Wilson taking race victory in 33:44 giving the Masters Internationalist his third victory here. Angus MacTaggart battled hard and came home in a time of 45:51.

Taking a course best time by one minute and twenty one seconds was Kate Wilson who came home in 58:22 not too far behind other female Girvan runner Deborah Reed who was running at Stranraer for the first time securing a good time 54:37.

Stranraer will be holding their half marathon earlier in the race calendar after this years event was cancelled. They are returning to their original March date to attract pre-London marathon runners.
