I am writing to let you know details of this year’s Co-operative Balfron 10k. This year’s race takes place on Sunday 26th April 2009 at 11am.
First run in 2007, this event has proved extremely popular with runners of all abilities. The officially measured course, chip-timing, winners prizes and professional organisation appeal to the most serious runners, whilst the friendly atmosphere, traffic-free route and excellent goody bags including commemorative medal and T-shirt make it a great race for the more casual runner and even first-time 10k-er.
We have received excellent reviews from runners and press alike, and are expecting in excess of 500 runners again this year.
Online entries are now open at www.balfron10k.org.uk or download an entry form and post it in. Subject to availability we will be accepting entries on the day, but would advise early advance entry to ensure a place and a guaranteed medal and T-shirt.
Balfron is an attractive rural village in West Stirlingshire, and can be easily reached from Glasgow (30 mins), Edinburgh (1hr 15) and Stirling (25 mins).
If you require any additional information about the event then please contact me by email or phone, or you can find more details on www.balfron10k.org.uk. All proceeds raised from this event are being donated to the local primary and secondary schools.
