Balloch 5K Why not join in the Balloch Run 'n' Park 5k on Saturday 18th August? The aim is to get as many people as possible to get out walking, jogging and running. Check out the details here. Want to run on another date? You can also run around the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park every Saturday. On Saturdays at 9.30 am a 5k run will start just inside the main gates of the Park which is on Balloch Road (Opposite the bus terminus which is next to the Co-Operative supermarket). There is no registration, no fee and no official recording of times - just turn up for a run in the Park! The course will be marked out with directional signs but it must be stressed that participants will run at their own risk. There is also a hotline number to call (075343 65271) to check if run has been cancelled due to adverse weather conditions - please note this number is unable to receive any messages.
