Kirkwall 10k Run – Results

A record number of 58 runners completed the W Hourston Kirkwall 10k – the first in the 2018 series of 10k run events – and the first following the introduction of the online entry only arrangement. 

With a relatively light breeze (as always, managing to blow in the faces of the runners both as they headed out to Hatston – and on their return!), the clear winner from the outset was Bobby Oag who was only a minute and a half away from his 2012, overall Kirkwall 10k run winning time. Since he last ran the Kirkwall 10k there has been a change to the course, so although not the fastest time for this event overall – a new course record was set.

Craig Moar and Davie MacLeod battled it out throughout the course for second position, with Craig ultimately taking the placing at the finish line.

First female home, following a strong course run was Emma Horne with second placing going to Chelsea Cook.

The club are delighted with the sustained growth in this event and particularly in the range of both new and experienced runners taking part. The Kirkwall 10k is the first in the series of four events which take place in Orkney over the summer – the next of which is the Flotta 10k and All Age Fun 5k Run – online entry for all events can be accessed via the Events page for each event or from the Senior Membership drop down menu. Please note that online entry closes 1 WEEK ahead of each event.

Introduced last year for all series events was the presentation of finishers medals – and the club are very grateful to Kirkwall 10k event sponsors W Hourston for sponsoring the event and to Tom MacPhail for coming along to hand out the medals and winner trophies.
