Co-operative Balfron 10K

26th April 2009

Rather than do our normal long Sunday run, three of us decided to head to Balfron on Sunday 26th April to do the 10k.
An easy 45 minute drive from Falkirk (depending on who is driving), with views of the Campsies and Ben Lomond makes it a very appealing for those wanting a handy, scenic run.

It was a great race as long as you don't mind a hill or two. The route is described as undulating and although it is an out and back course it definitely felt like it was mainly uphill. A really good testing run, needless to say no PBs today!

It was very well organised. No queuing for numbers, even for entry on the day. Plenty of support and two water stations on the route, fruit at the finish, plus a goodie bag with a medal, a sweatshop discount voucher and the usual edible goodies.

Plus our own little baker had brought us cakes for after the race, result! Thanks Christine.

And the heated seats on the way home just finished our trip to Balfron off nicely! Nice one Alastair.

We all enjoyed the run and will be back next year.
