Balmoral Record Breaker Aims to Return - 16 January 2010

Scottish International Lynn Wilson and her Spanish husband Juan Mareque hope to return to this year’s Stena Drilling Tartan 10K.

The Edinburgh-based couple have enjoyed huge success on their previous visits to Deeside and will be aiming to add to their list of honours on this occasion. Lynn set an impressive women's course record 36min 23sec in 2006 and she won again in 2008 with a time of 36:36.

Wilson also finished second to England international Mary Wilkinson in the 2005 race when she clocked 36:58.
Mareque's results are equally impressive. He won the men's race in 2006 in 32:33 and he was runner-up to Ethiopia's Dereje Kebede in 2005 and to Central AC's Ross Houston in 2008.

Lyn hopes to get back into competitive action soon after a long lay-off.
She said:"I've had a problem with a heel spur which led to problems with my achilles tendon. But I've been getting treatment and it seems fine now."
