Sunshine and big crowds greeted the largest ever field of runners for the 21st edition of the Linlithgow 10k Road Race and Junior Fun Run on Sunday.

The event is the culmination of months of effort by Linlithgow AC and over the years has become a popular fixture on the Scottish athletics calendar.

The 10k race has previously sold out well in advance leaving many runners disappointed so, earlier this year, the race committee decided to increase the number of entries. The fun run also achieved a higher entry than in previous years.

Provost Tom Kerr started the 10k and the runners headed off west along the High Street, cheered on by hordes of townsfolk. Fit Kit, the mascot of West Lothian Run sent the youngsters off on their 1.5k contest to further cheers.

Paul Sorrie of Shettleston Harriers charged into the Peel to take first place for the sixth time in a row, breaking the tape in 32:01. Robert Turner of Edinburgh AC was second in 34:32 with Stuart Campbell of Corstorphine AAC third at 35:15. Chloe Cox, Lothian Running Club, crossed the line in 37:24 giving her top spot in the female race. There was a duel for the remaining podium places with Lyn McGill, Linlithgow AC, eventually pushing ahead and taking the runner up spot in 42:07. Rebecca Piggot of Edinburgh University Hare and Hounds finished in 42:12 for third.

Fun Run winner Andrew Veitch, Linlithgow AC, completed the course in 7:04. Ruari Bell, also Linlithgow AC, came second in 7:13 with Inverclyde AC’s Sammy Hearl third.

First home for the girls was Skye Cadell, 7:37. Katy McGonigal of Falkirk Vics took second with 7:41, ahead of Emily Jamieson at 7:49.
