Cumbernauld 10K 2015 Results
Now in its eighth year and bigger and better than ever, Sunday saw a record 1,000 runners and walkers of all ages take part in Cumbernauld’s annual festival of running.
Organised by NL Leisure, North Lanarkshire Council and Campsies Centre Cumbernauld; the event goes from strength to strength, aided by support from partners Strathmore Water and the Cumbernauld News as well as charity partner the Scottish Spina Bifida Association.
Children from Primary 5-7 got a great day off to a rocking start in a series of 1K races; before S1-S4s scorched around a 3K course ahead of the day’s main event, a 10K race that’s grown in popularity with each passing year.
The final event of the day, The Victory Mile, drew the biggest cheers as families and small children, many in wheelchairs, enjoyed the chance to get involved in the action.
Undefeated champion Robert Gilroy again led the field home in the men’s 10K in a blistering 31 minutes followed by Josef Farkas and Del Young.
In the women’s race, Lindsay Currie took victory in an impressive 39 minutes with Elaine Somerville in second and Lisa Noble third.
The boys 3K Race was won by Thomas Whiteford ahead of Cameron Taylor-Cameron and Alasdair McMonagle; while Alisha Sivell held off Lucy Somerville and Emma Johnson to win the girls race.
The winners were presented with their trophies by Provost (and honorary starter) Jim Robertson.
