The race calendar relay kicks into gear this weekend with the return of the Devil's Burdens race on Saturday. The 30K race consists of four legs for teams of six. The course heads over the Lomond Hills and participants are advised to wear full body cover.

Also on Saturday, the Buchlyvie 10K will see over 200 runners head to Stirlingshire. The out-and-back course is mostly flat and downhill but, be warned, it does have a propensity for getting muddy.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend, and remember you can check our race listings for your results!
