If you’re looking to start 2017 on a healthy footing, West Dunbartonshire AC is encouraging people to take part in their New Year’s Shortbread Run on 2 January at Balloch Country Park. Now in its sixth year, the two-mile event follows pathways around the park, taking in the stunning Balloch Castle and the Walled Garden, all set to the beautiful backdrop of surrounding hills.
The route will be marked out with directional signs and limited stewards. Children under 11 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. There is no registration, no fee and no official recording of times. You just need to turn up for a walk, jog or run in the park.
Participants will be rewarded for their efforts with a complimentary piece of shortbread courtesy of event sponsor Walkers.
