Balloch to Clydebank Half Marathon

14th March 2010

Results | Race route

This morning I cycled up to Balloch to follow the half marathon back to Clydebank. The first few miles saw a lead pack of 10 runners working together. The lead group consisted of Matt Gillespie, Thomas Fay & Michael Deason of Glasgow Uni, Jethro Lennox, Allan Adams & Paul Sorrie of Shettleston, Kerry Liam Wilson & Robert Gilroy of Cambuslang, and Kenny Richmond & Matt Williamson of Bellahouston.

Between Renton and Dumbarton the field began to stretch out, and by Mile 5, 19-yr old Matt Gillespie of Glasgow Uni, running his first half marathon, had made his move and was off the front. By Mile 6 Matt's lead had increased. Between miles 9 and 11, Jethro appeared to be gaining some ground, but was never going to close the gap. So the finishing order was:
1. Matthew Gillespie, Glasgow Uni, 1:08:24
2. Jethro Lennox, Shettleston, 1:09:28
3. Allan Adams, Shettleston, 1:09:39
4. Kerry Liam Wilson, Cambuslang
5. Thomas Fay, Glasgow Uni
6. Kenny Richmond, Bellahouston RR
7. Robert Gilroy, Cambuslang
8. Paul Sorrie, Shettleston
9. Michael Deason, Glasgow Uni
10. Daniel Bradford, Glasgow Uni
11. Matt Williamson, Bellahouston RR
12. Joe McKnight, Garscube
