Motherwell Athletics Club sent a 25-strong team to the Brian Goodwin 10k in the Southside of Glasgow.

Arranged by Bellahouston Harriers, the race is a two-lap loop taking in Pollok Park and out onto nearby closed roads, the course is relatively flat with one small climb in the middle.

Runners are then welcomed at Cartha Queen’s Park Rugby Club for a burger and drink, with socks supplied by kit provider Migo Sports.

First over the line for Motherwell AC was Jonathan Moore, who finished seventh overall in a new personal best time of 31:32.
