Babcock 10k series planned for May; Inverness Half and 5k entries

Saturday 15th January 2022

Entry links for three Babcock races

The Babcock 10k Series will return later this year with races in Helensburgh, Dumbarton and Glasgow Green in May.

Three host clubs – Helensburgh AC, Dumbarton AC and Shettleston Harriers – last staged their events in 2019, first of all delaying their events to the autumn and then the following spring, without success. The 2020 and 2021 events were subsequently delayed due to Covid-19.

For 2022, there are already almost 1200 entries for the three races, either carried over from 2020 or received since entries opened recently.

Kenny Douglas, Managing Director of Babcock at HMNB Clyde, said: ‘We are really pleased to support the 10k Series again, and look forward to the events and our employees taking part. It’s a fantastic opportunity for runners of all ages and abilities to get involved.’

The series is for everyone, from those contemplating their first 10k and requiring support and guidance with their training programme, through to experienced recreational runners and more serious club athletes, to Olympians and World Championship representatives.

Entries are open now at Babcock 10k Series on Entry Central.


Run ABC Scotland website report

With just over eight weeks to go until the return of the Inverness Half Marathon & 5K, entries are selling fast.

Runners are set to return to the start line of the popular Highlands challenge on Sunday 13 March.

The early season half-marathon with great PB potential follows a flat and scenic route through the historic Highland capital of Inverness alongside the picturesque River Ness.

The 5K route also sticks to the banks of the River Ness, and is a perfect event for both ‘resolution’ and experienced runners of all ages alike.


Meanwhile, the Tom Scott 10-Mile Road Race should take place as usual in April with the date TBC.

This race has been the Scottish 10-Mile Champs in recent years and a message from the event organisers stated:

‘Just a quick notice to all our supporters that we are working towards our Tom Scott Road Races returning this year, in our usual April slot.

‘We’re currently in discussions with the various stakeholders involved in holding the event and are hopeful to be able to bring some news very soon.

‘In the meantime, thanks for your unwavering support!’
