    I took part in the Callander 10k last year and had the Killin event recommended to me. I wasn’t disappointed. Great route and excellent scenery when I could lift my head up.
    Really well organised event by TayFitness and I’m looking forward to next weekend at Loch 2 Lawers.

    I’ve done this run 6 times now and it never fails to disappoint! Stunning route with scenery to match. Very well organised, plenty of water stops, photographers and amazing cakes at the end! The kids fun run is also great.

    My first time running the Killin 10k and I really enjoyed the event. Very different to the Hidden Glen 10k and a different challenge.
    I think the very warm weather made it tougher and I should have bought a hat with me for my bald head😂
    I personally prefer 10k runs on a Sunday as I ran a parkrun event at 9:30 on the morning of this years Killin 10k and I certainly felt it in my legs towards the end.
    The food in the hall was very welcome and I loved the soup and sandwiches and all the T-shirts options are great.
    Hope to return next year to improve on my time and I will move into the 50 age group category.
    Cheers

    First 10k in a long time and what a great experience it was. Really well organised and the marshalls were all fantastic. The water stops were particularly appreciated as it was a roaster of a day. Soup and cakes afterwards were also first class. Definitely an event I would do again
