Scott Rankin was the winner of this year’s Dessie’s Run 10k, held at the Gransha Grounds.

The Foyle Valley Athletics Club man took the honours just ahead of City of Derry Spartan Greg Roberts.

Both were in a tight constant battle throughout before Rankin did just enough to get away for the win in 31.30 ahead of Roberts who was a further five seconds back in 31.35.

Spartans' Gary Slevin, who is in heavy marathon training, was impressive in 3rd for a big PB running time of 32.40.
