Loch Tayside Race Weekend 2013
Saturday 12th October - Meall nan Tarmachan
Sunday 13th October - Sron à Clachain
Once again, Lochtayside will be organising their annual hill race weekend with all money proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
The entry fee will cover both races with a great, free lunch after Saturdays race.
On the Saturday evening there is an Ogham concert taking place in the Maclaren Hall which we thoroughly recommend
going to if your staying over for the weekend. All proceeds are going to local charities with lots of young, local musicians playing too.
Registration for both races will take place at the Maclaren Hall in Killin, between 11.30am and 12.30pm. On Saturday please allow 15 minutes to get from Killin to the Ben Lawers car park (race venue). For more information

We'd just like to say a big thank you to our sponsors at the Real Food Cafe and the Killin Cancer Committee ladies who put on the lunch.
