We are a small community, and this is our big day. Please enter and share it with us. We must limit our runners to 300 so we will fill this event quickly. The event is organised by locals who try their best to make this a great event. The course is out and back, and chip timed. Registration is in the village hall between 11 and 1pm.The race begins behind the Primary School turning left onto Station Road for just over half a mile turning right onto the old railway track (predominantly fire track and flat). The halfway turning point is at Barbadoes Cottage (situated on the old railway track). On the return the course finishes at the school. The race is run under UK Athletics Rules and is a Scottish Athletics permit event. We have first aiders, marshals and Lomond Mountain rescue team. Money raised from this event is to help our village hall, Lomond Mountain Rescue and local charities.
