Killin

The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

THE KILLIN 10K race, spon­sored by Port­nel­lan, takes place on Satur­day Au­gust 26.

The an­nual event, now in its sev­enth year, will see run­ners take on a slightly dif­fer­ent route to ac­com­mo­date its grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity.

The race will start and fin­ish in Breadal­bane Park, set against the back­drop of the im­pres­sive Tar­ma­chan moun­tain range and a stone’s throw from Loch Tay.

Run­ners will head through the vil­lage and across the spec­tac­u­lar Falls of Dochart be­fore join­ing the old rail­way line, which runs par­al­lel to the river. Af­ter cross­ing the river for a sec­ond time, par­tic­i­pants will emerge back into the vil­lage and run an un­du­lat­ing loop of beau­ti­ful Glen Lochay, trac­ing the Lochay River, be­fore fin­ish­ing in Breadal­bane Park.

En­try is just £17, which in­cludes a medal and goody bag for all run­ners. A fun run for peo­ple of all ages of ap­prox­i­mately 1km will also take place in Breadal­bane Park dur­ing the 10K. Be sure to re­turn to the vil­lage hall af­ter the event for a lunch pro­vided by Killin Cancer Re­search Com­mit­tee. The event is gen­er­ously sup­ported by Port­nel­lan and Wheels Cy­cling Cen­tre, Cal­lan­der. To en­ter, visit killin10k.co.uk
