The Killin 10K and 5K route starts and finishes in Breadalbane Park. The route takes runners slightly uphill up Main St to cross the Dochart Bridge before joining the old railway line, which runs parallel to the river. After crossing the river for the second time over the old rail viaduct 10K runners will continue back towards the McLaren Hall and 5K runners will split off and stay on the railway line. 5K runners will run parallel to Loch Tay, cross the River Lochay and run towards the head of the Loch. After 3Km they will reach the turning point and return back to Breadalbane Park, passing the ruins of Finlarig Castle and crossing the River Lochay again.

After nearly 3Km the 10K route leaves the village and goes up Glen Lochay and show off fantastic views of the Tarmachan Range and River Lochay. The route continues further into the Glen and passes the hydro station where runners turn and head for the finish after they climb the short hill at the 6Km mark. The Glen Lochay section follows a beautiful undulating loop on a single track tarmac road. In the last 1Km you will rejoin the main road back into Killin before returning to the village and finishing in Breadalbane Park. The final few hundred metres takes you over a short section of grass, on to the park path and across the finish line.

The Fun Run will start and finish in Breadalbane Park. It will take in 2 laps of the park totalling 1.1Km approximately. Runners will be cheered round by spectators in the park along with the event compere Dougie Robertson.

All finishers in the 10K, 5K and fun run events will be given a medal and bottle of water when they finish. For more information please visit www.killin10k.co.uk or email
