HELENSBURGH 10K winner Weynay Ghebresilassie eased to his second win of this year’s Babcock 10K series when he saw off the competition in the Shettleston 10K on Glasgow Green on Sunday.

But it was in the women’s race where the latest record in the series was set, as Fionnuala Ross (above), who had set a record time in winning the Dumbarton 10K on May 16, demolished an international-standard field on Sunday with a new course record of 34 minutes and 12 seconds – a full 13 seconds faster than her previous best.

Helensburgh ladies’ race winner Annabel Simpson had to settle for second on Sunday, but she did win the overall ladies’ title courtesy of her Helensburgh victory and third place in Dumbarton.

Rio Olympic marathon runner Sonia Samuels, who travelled north from Loughborough, encouraged Kilbarchan’s Gemma Rankin to overtake her in the finishing straight as she battled with post London Marathon injury niggles; with sister Christine Rankin sixth Kilbarchan easily took the women’s team title.

In the men’s race, Stuart Gibson of Cambuslang broke up the Shettleston domination in second, four seconds ahead of the host club’s Peter Avent, whilst outstanding junior prospects Lewis Raeburn and Jamie Burns, both of Shettleston, took fourth and fifth places.

Raeburn also won the series title after finishing third in Helensburgh and Dumbarton, while Burns was rewarded for his efforts with the first under-20 award.

Greenock Glenpark’s Steven Campbell was first male over-40, in 14th overall, and Kilmarnock’s Scott Martin and Des Dickson of Cambuslang won the over-50 and over-60 honours
