Derek Hawkins

Callum Hawkins of Kilbarchan AAC put in an impressive performance at the Paisley Vision 10K on Sunday in sunny conditions. The 21-year-old (whose older brother Derek won the event last year) joined a field of 1200 runners as he won the men's race in 30:40.

Hawkins, who usually runs 3000/5000m, had no difficulties stepping up to the 10K distance as he beat Paul Sorrie of Shettleston Harriers by 14 seconds.

It was a double success for Kilbarchan with clubmate Hayley Haining finishing first in the women's event in 34:27 - her first 10k this year. She was followed by Gemma Rankin (also of Kilbarchan) in 34:58 who was first lady last year. The midpoint runner was James McGoldrick in 53:30.

Naomi Linney from Glasgow was taking part in the event for the first time and said afterwards: "The course was really nice and flat but I found the conditions quite tough with very little shade from the bright sun. I didn't get as good a time as I'd have liked but I was happy just to finish the race. My next goal is to do the half marathon at the Great Scottish Run"
