Saintfield 10k 2018:

On Saturday 13th October 2018, over four hundred competitors took on the Saintfield 10k and 5k road races organised by Saintfield Striders.

Peter Gilmore (Narrows TC) claimed victory in 36:43 (1st place), just ahead of Scrabo Striders’ own Jared Martin, who crossed the line in 36:54 for 2nd place.  Andrew Newell (Sperrin Harriers) completed the top three in 37:40 (3rd place).

In the ladies race, the always impressive Karen Wilton (Jog Lisburn RC) broke the tape in 38:46 for 1st place.  Lagan Valley AC’s Julie Murphy finished in 40:57 for 2nd place, while Amanda Perry of Ballydrain Harriers clocked 42:00 for 3rd place.

Kyle Ross (Ballydrain Harriers) won the associated 5k in 17:58 (1st place), but it was North Down AC’s Rachel Gibson who produced arguably the performance of the day. The Northern Ireland international secured 1st place in the ladies 5k in 18:52, which was enough to see her claim 3rd place overall.
