The course records for the 10 mile race were both set very recently and it is our hope that the times for the event will only get faster in the coming years.
Course Record (Male)
47:59 (Luke Traynor - 2018)
Course Record (Female)
55:34 (Sarah Inglis - 2018)
The fastest time ever run at the Tom Scott Memorial Road Races since the move to Strathclyde Park is by Luke Traynor, who dominated the 2018 edition to win just under 2 minutes from Kenny Wilson.
Traynor's time eclipsed the time of 48:46 mins set by Tsegezeab Woldemichael in 2010.
Sarah Inglis set a new ladies' course record in 2018 too, bettering the previous best set by Fionnuala Ross from two years earlier by 16 seconds.
Male course record holder Luke Traynor heads the field from the start
In 2018, the first three male athletes to cross the line did so in under 50 minutes and the three ladies in under 58 minutes, emphasising once more that the 10 mile course at the Tom Scott Memorial Road Races is one of the fastest, if not the fastest 10 mile course in Scotland.
There are bonus prizes available for athletes who break the course record, with prize funds increasing depending on how fast the new course record is.
The idea of the prize funds on offer is to encourage the highest quality of athletes to take part in a race which has a long and storied history on the Scottish Athletics calendar.
