Mulberry Bush Montessori Balfron 10k – 2020 Cancellation

Dear runners

After very careful consideration we have come to the difficult decision that due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions we will have to cancel this year’s event.

We had hoped to run the event on Sunday, September 13 and throughout the lockdown period we have been closely monitoring all advice and guidelines being given by the Scottish Government. 

However after assessing all current available information it is our view that social distancing restrictions and current ban on mass gatherings are likely to extend into late summer and include September. Such a scenario will make it impossible to organise and deliver the community event that is the Mulberry Bush Montessori Balfron 10k.

All of our 10k team are very disappointed at having to make this decision but the welfare of runners, volunteers, visitors and our community is paramount.

All entries for 2020 will be deferred to our new date, provisionally 25th April 2021. While we hope you will join us in 2021 and support the good causes we donate to, any runner unable to take part next year can request a refund of £15.72 (non-Scottish Athletics members) and £13.72 (Scottish Athletics). This takes into account our costs already incurred for the 2020 race. Please contact if you would prefer a refund rather than 2021 race entry. In most cases refunds will be handled by Paypal, using the same account used to pay. Please allow up to 4 weeks for this to be processed.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the start line in 2021 but in the meantime, stay safe and keep running.
