Torrential rain fails to dampen the spirits of runners in Womens 10k

For thousands of women the months of hard preparation, muscle twinges and trepidation were over.
All they had to do was complete the most important bit: the 10km course. Click play to watch our video from the event. Thousands more spectators lined the route to cheer on family and friends and enjoy watching potential Commonwealth champions strive for a personal best. The sun broke through the clouds as the elite runners lined up under the white balloons shortly before 10am to a rousing soundtrack by The Proclaimers. Bryan Burnett, host of the Ignis Asset Management Women’s 10k, offered some words of encouragement to those raising funds for charity, urging them to take a moment to consider who they were running for.
The rain stayed off until around noon when the heavens opened and the last, but not least, runners were hit with a torrent of hailstones.
