Kick-Start 2018 With The Shortbread Run

Start 2018 the way you mean to go on by taking on Balloch’s New Year's Shortbread 2 Mile Walk, Jog or Run on 2 January. Now celebrating its seventh year, this iconic venue hosts this event where all participants get the chance to kick start their New Year’s resolution to get fit and active by going that extra mile, or two miles to be precise.

Event organiser – West Dunbartonshire Athletics Club, invites residents from the local community along with walkers, joggers and runners to come along and lace up their trainers on the second day of the New Year to take part in the event located in the National Park.

The course route follows the pathways around the park which starts at the main gates, before take in the stunning images of Balloch Castle, the Walled Garden and, of course, the beautiful backdrop of the hills, before returning back to the main gates at Balloch Road.

There is no cost to enter and all participants will receive a complimentary piece of shortbread from sponsors Walkers following the race.
