Cumbernauld’s smash hit 10K was won by Hamilton runner Robert Gilroy who beat his nearest rival by nearly two minutes.

Fast mover Robert is a multiple winner of the event - and completed the course in just 31 minutes and 48 seconds.

This year’s event was the first ever to sell out completely, meaning that 1100 athletes took part.

A total of 400 children and young people took part in four more races.

The event has been hailed online as a major success, not simply for its sporting component but for a high standard of organisation plus the other fun activities which took place at Broadwood on the big day.
