Runners World – Races of the Year 2012: 10Ks

Once again we have been ranked No. 1 10k race in Scotland, and this time No. 4 10k race in the UK by Runners World readers.

4. Balfron 10K, Stirling, Scotland

Date in 2012: April 22

North of the border, this is fast establishing itself as Scotland’s best 10K thanks to vocal locals running, marshalling and supporting it. The route winds its way around quiet country lanes along the Endrik Valley with views south towards the magnificent Campsie Fells north of Glasgow.
