Mairi Clark – Runner’s World
In short: Simply divine 10K with positively the best views, organisation, atmosphere, charity entries & mix of ages for a brilliant 10K!
In full: A 10K that offers the freshest of air in your lungs along a road with the best views of the Campsie’s ever & at the end you get a great medal & a coffee & cake from Doyles stall to match! There are plenty of toilets, changing rooms, great starting & end point organisation, genuine enthusiastic support along the way, delightful bag handing over with a smile at the end, hearty fun announcer, plenty of water on route (with lid loosened thank you) handed to you by happy Balfron community children, great marshalling at well marked points keeping the run back & finish clear, good quality t shirts & goody bags very goody! Thank you Balfron 10k – the best 10k for sure with everything thought about, considered & delivered for the runner & spectators! Here’s to 2014!

Susan O’Donnell – Runner’s World
In short: Very well organised, friendly, scenic and atmospheric.
In full: Being an absolute beginner, this was my first 10k motivated by raising funds for SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health)in loving memory of Leigh Smith, much missed daughter of Jacque Smith. Thoughts of Leigh and Jacque spurned me on during training these past three months and on the day itself. The race was well organised, communication in the run up to it frequent, email enquiries answered promptly and all went without a hitch on the day. A great day and the experienced runners called out words of encouragement to us newbies as they ran by…that was lovely. Big congratulations on a wonderful event.
