Stephen Scullion and Breege Connolly provided the host club with the Male and Female Open winners in Sunday's Laganside 10km on Ormeau Embankment.

A record 800 plus runners took part in this year’s race which featured marquees staffed by Up and Running Belfast, Alison Hill Photography, Physiotherapists and volunteers. Scullion had St Malachy’s athlete Joe McAllister for company for most of the race but proved he was a class apart going on to win in 30.47 to McAllister’s 31.01.

Alan McCullough showed he is benefiting from the move back to former club North Belfast Harriers, with a strong performance to finish fifth in 32.45 just behind Paul Rowan.

Conor Curran finished in 8th place in 33.48 to seal the team victory for the Harriers.

In the women’s race, Breege Connolly ran a controlled race to win in 36.24 easily ahead of Julie Balmer, North Down AC in 38.08.

Harrier’s Lisa Sturgeon took third female spot in 39.20.
