Fionnuala Ross continued her domination of the Scottish 10km Road Championships, winning the title for the 4th year in a row. Her time of 34.05 was excellent on a windy day which slowed the runners down over the Stirling course. She was well clear from Stephie Pennycoat ( Fife) 34.40 and Jo Williams (Lothian) 35.47. Her team mate Avril Mason took the Masters title for the first time, finishing 6th overall in the Ladies Race in a time of 36.19. It was a pity they did not have a full team as with Fionnuala and Avril well up in the race a team medal was possible.
First home for the men was Daniel Bradford in 10th position in a time of 31.36 followed by Mike Deason in 17th position(32mins), Kevin Brydon finished 43rd (33.34) and the team was closed in by Paul Sorrie 55th (34.05)
10th Daniel Bradford 31.36, 17th Mike Deason 32.00, 43rd Kevin Brydon 33.34, 55th Paul Sorrie 34.05, 70th Brian McGarrity 34.56, 88th Peter Mackie 35.39 (13th M40), 114th Adam Peters 36.34, 142nd William Coyle 37.33 (6th M50)
