The CCW Linlithgow 10k and Fun Run took place on Sunday, 8 October 2017. In the 25th running of the event, there was a record number of runners and it was hailed a great success. Hundreds of volunteers helped make the day possible, with local scouts, guides, rotary club, police youth volunteers, churches and many other local businesses playing a part.
A number of our own CCW people took part including two runners and a team of volunteers, who enjoyed marshalling, mustering and handing out goodies to the finishers.
There were many charity runners and first timers on the day, but the sharp end of the race was hotly contested with a winning time of 32:42 by Paul Sorrie of Shettleston Harriers, recording his eighth win of the race. The ladies’ winner, Ella Revitt of Edinburgh AC, crossed the line in an impressive 37:16 – the fastest female time on the course in recent years.
The Fun Run enjoyed 236 finishers this year, aged eight to fifteen, who were all included in the official chip timing of the event. The winners of the 1.9k race were Alastair Marshall and Isla Calvert, both of Livingston & District AAC, with impressive times of 6:08 and 6:16 respectively.
CCW volunteers held the finish tape for the winners and Alison Marshall (after completing the race herself) presented the prizes to round off a great day. CCW are proud to have sponsored the event for the fourth year running and would like to thank Linlithgow AC for staging such a wonderful day.
