Momentum is building for this year's Balloch to Clydebank half marathon with just two months until the event on 14 April. The historic race, first held in 1928, starts on Loch Lomond shores at 9am and finishes at Seaforth Road, Clydebank.

There were near perfect conditions at last year's race, won by Stephen Trainer of Greenock Glenpark Harriers, with top marathon runner Hayley Haining finishing as fastest female. The race route is relatively flat with minor inclines along the way between Dumbarton Gateway Services and the Dunglass Roundabout, and between Bowling and Old Kilpatrick.

The closing date to register is 31 March unless the race limit is reached before then. All entries prior to 1 March will be eligible for the early bird discount of £18 (entries received after this date will cost £20). Transport by bus is included in the entry fee, the bus will leave from the Playdrome Abbotsford Road, Clydebank at 8am and arrive at Balloch in plenty of time for the race.
