The Callander 10K starts at McLaren Leisure Centre and takes runners out towards Loch Venachar then on to part of The Great Trossachs Path. Returning into Callander runners pass the River Teith at Callander Meadows and then it’s the final push to the finish!

Loved this race, the route was amazing with a little bit of everything thrown in. Mostly road/cycle path with a little bit of trail, a hill that seems to go on forever and a little lung busting kicker near the end. Marshalls, as with all Tay Fitness events, were superb. Shame that I missed next year’s entry but will definitely be back

I ran the first ever Callander 10K today, it was fantastic. Thank you TayFitness, another awesome event, awesome route, stunningly beautiful as always and so much fun. It was my first live event with other runners since lockdown and what a 10k, you never disappoint. You’re events are the best and so are you. Thank you for a great day today. I loved it.

Thanks for a great race. My first “real” race since Dec 2019. The rain thankfully went off, but made great puddles for running through, if only we could walk on water as some folk were trying to do🤿. Missed the view of the Loch (I think, maybe catch it next time). Everyone involved were amazing. Loved the piper. Thank you.
Jennifer Kettle (verified owner) –
Given the conditions I seriously thought this was going to be a miserable experience today. Instead it was a fantastic experience: great route, marshals and organisation from start to finish. The energy and buzz was almost as good as the sharp pumpkin suit 🎃🎃🎃
Jason Miles-Campbell (verified owner) –
Great event! Recent pandemic times have made me very appreciative of both the camaraderie and competition involved in a race. Like Tay Fitness’s other races (I’ve done a few), this was well organised – easy sign-up, good pre-race info, an interesting route, generous water station provision, and above all, clear and encouraging marshaling. Attractive medal as a momento, and a pleasant surprise that I’d ordered a t-shirt when I entered pre-pandemic two years ago 🙂 I’ll certainly be back for more Tay Fitness events – well done!
Rachel Yule (verified owner) –
This was a very well organised race throughout. My pre race questions were asked quickly and event information was sufficiently detailed and sent out in good time.
The race itself was on a superb route with beautiful scenery which made the most of the autumn colours around Callander. I especially enjoyed the short off road section, probably the highlight of the route for me.
Course was well marshalled and the drinks stations operated efficiently, probably better than at some more established events I’ve done
Margo Turner (verified owner) –

Absolutely loved it.
The route and scenery all came second to the excellent marshals along the route, they did an excellent job keeping us safe and smiling all the way to the finish line. Thank you XXX
Laura Anderson (verified owner) –
My first proper race since Jan 2020 and it didn’t disappoint! Despite the weather I had an amazing run at Callander 10k. The route was simply stunning, the piper just after 5k added to the atmosphere and the marshals were simply the best. Every single one had encouraging words….. which I needed! Slick organisation and perfect execution of a fab event. I’ll be back.
Miriam Adcock (verified owner) –
Great event. I don’t normally like road runs, but loved this – great route – particularly liked the off road bit with the reward of a piper at the top. And I don’t know how you arranged for the rain to stop just as we started running but it was much appreciated. And really loved the commentator at the finish – great outfit, completely bonkers (in a good way) and so encouraging and entertaining. Thanks to all involved.
Graham Baird (verified owner) –
Loved this event, route was superb. As usual Pete and his team had everything so well organised. Every Marshall had a smile and a well done. Even the weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of everyone.
What can you say about fun at the start and the cheery finish with your name being called out. Makes you feel special. I will be back and will continue to book the Tay Fitness events. That are simply brilliant.
Stuart Macfarlane (verified owner) –
A fabulous race through wonderfully scenic countryside.
The route is along very quiet roads and paths with a few kilometres of trail – there is even a nice wee hill thrown in at no extra cost.
This is a well organised event with plenty of cheery marshalls along the way and more photographers than you’d find at a Photography Club on free beer night.
Before the event the organisers took the trouble to ask if, because of my medical condition, there is anything I might need from them on the day of the race – of the zillions of other races I have done, no one has every asked this. Nice touch!!
Zoe Richardson (verified owner) –
Great wee run, marshals were super, route was good and I loved the piper at the top of the hill. Very well organised and results were in very quickly.

Great event, very well organised and everyone super friendly. Great to have the Piper on the course too. Several tricky wee surprise hills that make it extra fun. I will be back here and at other Tay Fitness races.

Well organised with a friendly atmosphere. Mini event village at the start / finish with Big Bobble Hats, Active Root, coffee and Tay Fitness t-shirts. Very easy registration and plenty of toilets. Route was lovely and scenic and a great finish with energetic announcer. Looking forward to running again in March.

Ran the Callander 10k today. One of the best organised events I have attended.

Brilliant event, the marshals and volunteers really keep you going. I did the last one in October and signed up for this one as I loved it. The piper is well timed and gives a boost just when it’s needed. Well done to everyone involved in putting the event on 😊 Now to look forward to all the other Tay Fitness Events I have signed up to.
Graeme Thomson (verified owner) –
Brilliant event, best I’ve done so far. Well organised, great fun and huge encouragement from the marshalls, locals and fellow runner. Hills at 5k and 9.5k nearly ended me, but least I’d have gone with a smile,

Will definitely do this again. Thank you, Tay Fitness!!

Fantastic race today. So well organised and brilliant volunteers. Loved their enthusiasm and friendliness. The route was beautiful but challenging. The pipers on the route certainly helped keeping me going. I had an issue with my registration as I changed from doing one 10K to all of them and the team were very quick to help me out and responded quickly. Can’t wait until the next event.
Anne Guthrie (verified owner) –
Great event. Amazing volunteers, pipers and drummers along the route. Beautiful scenery with just the right amount of challenges along the way. Would definitely do another Tay Fitness event.
Harriet Stocker –
First time doing a Tay Fitness Event today. The communication has been fantastic, with parking and other clear event info. The event was so well organised. The pipers, the drummer and all the marshals were fab! It was great to have 2 water stops along the route. I’ll see you in Thornhill!
Kathleen Haddow –
Fab race, well organised and awesome support. Tough cpuple of hills but spectacular scenery. Loved it, particulalry the marshal at 9k with her hilarious hat!!!!

Fantastic run today. First Tay Fitness event and would thoroughly recommend. Great start line facilities (no long toilet q bonus). Marshals, police, pipers, drummer all brilliant today. Mount Everest at 5k not so but hills are character building!! Loved it and even managed a PB with that hill. Well done everyone involved and all runners today.

Judith Thomas (verified owner) –
What a great event, so well organised, great marshalls and fantastic atmosphere. The pipers along the route and drummer at the first feed station added something extra special. It’s the first run I’ve actually got a chance to look at the scenery…not much else to do as I walked up the big hill 😀
Ishbel Muir (verified owner) –
Great race, lovely route with a ‘wee’ challenging hill half way! Very well organised as all TayFitness Events are! Friendliest Marshall’s ever 😁
Thoroughly enjoyed it all, and have signed up for Thornhill now!
stevencraik (verified owner) –
A super 10k in tough wintery conditions. Well organised. Most of the course is flat, however the 2k up and downhill were challenging. The final hill was a shock! I loved the Pipers and the drummer/band playing Sweet Child of Mine. Loved it and will be back.
Richard Eadington –
Well done to the organisers and fellow participants for making such a memorable event. A really well run event with a lovely route and open to all abilities of runners.😊

What a well organised 10k race. Friendly and helpful marshals and a great scenic route. The pipers and drummers helped spur you on, especially the piper at the top of the hill. Runners and locals all enjoyed themselves.
Mary McCutcheon (verified owner) –
I have participated in many previous Tay Fitness events. I knew therefore that I could expect a well organised event with great marshalls and route markings. These together with a beautiful route was guaranteed. What I also like about Tay fitness events is that they manage to make events both large but intimate and friendly at the same time. Each event contributes to the community which also makes it appealing. Keep doing what you are doing. It’s working. Thanks
Hannah Holmes (verified owner) –
We had an absolute blast at this run. We cannot thank the organisers or volunteers enough. The course was stunning and the hill was challenging but rewarding. There was a great atmosphere and the pipers were fantastic!

Derek Yule (verified owner) –
This was my first time running Callander. I thought everything about the event was brilliant. From pre-event information to the day itself, organisation was excellent. The warm up was much appreciated and one of the best I have done, and the many people along the route encouraged all runners. The pipers were particularly welcome. It’s a lovely course but does have a couple of climbs, so it is not easy. But I would thoroughly recommend this event to anyone. I definitely plan to be back.
Jane Hunter (verified owner) –
Loved this 10km! Everything felt well organized and friendly. An iconic route and well marshalled. Loved the pipers and the drummer, lovely touches esp at the top of the hill! Great scenery, all in Scotland at it’s best. Well done TayFitness, plan to be back! Thank you everyone. Jane and Liz.
Rhona Penman (verified owner) –
A fabulous event. The atmosphere was so friendly and supportive throughout, and much appreciated given the weather, underfoot conditions and oh, those hills lol. A tough but really interesting route. I will definitely be back and would recommend this race to everyone.
