Whalsay distance runner Michelle Sandison ran a new Shetland 10k road race record at the Clydebank Polaroid Series event last Thursday.

The Glasgow-based athlete ran her fastest time since 2002, lowering her own Shetland record to 35 minutes 45 seconds.

Sandison said after the race: “I’m so excited. I knew I was running well but I didn’t expect that time.

“It’s taken me 13 years to beat that record. Hopefully I can take this form to the island games next month in Jersey.”

Sandison and Katie Bristow will be representing Shetland at both the 10,000 metres and 5,000 metres at the the island games. The girls are firm friends and both looking forward to the challenge.
