Tartan Triumph For Wondrous Wetton

Jenn WettonScotland international Jenn Wetton made history at RunBalmoral this weekend as she broke the longest-standing record in the history of the event. The Central AC runner won the women’s Stena Drilling Tartan 10K in 36:20, shaving three seconds off the previous record set in 2006.

The Stirling-based athlete was delighted with the result but admitted to finding it tougher than she’d anticipated: "My dad has run here many times before and he told me about the hill, as did my coach, Derek Easton, but it was a lot tougher than either of them made out."

Scottish 10,000m track champion Will Mackay made up for the disappointment of missing London Marathon by winning the men's 10k in 32:28.

In the ConocoPhilips 5K, Kenny Wilson knocked 10 seconds off his previous best time to cross the finish line ahead of the other 633 runners in 15:14. Jenny Bannerman (Inverness Harriers) celebrated her call-up to the Scotland international side for a half marathon in Denmark by winning the women's prize in 17:03.

Teenager Anisha Badial (Aberdeen AAC) set a course record of 20:48 to win the Jogscotland Challenge three mile Wee Trail Race. Dan Whitehead's strength on the bike earned the Ballater man a clear victory in the men’s Apollo Duathlon which was being held for the second time. Aberdeen's Kerry Prise led from the start to take the women's prize in 1:33:08, seeing off title-holder Laura Wood.

It was a bonnie victory for Michael O’Donnell (Inverness Harriers) as he finished well ahead of Brian Bonnyman (Westerlands) to win the men’s Glacier Energy 15 Mile Trail Race in 1:29:56. In the women’s race, Aberdeen doctor Moira Davie (Forres Harriers) collected the women’s prize for the second year in a row.
