Welcome to the fourth year of the Babcock 10k Series.
We will be aspiring to maintain the same high standards of event organisation that we have always sought to deliver whilst introducing a few exciting new initiatives, as the series unfolds. The first race is in Helensburgh on Thursday 5th May, followed by Dumbarton on Thursday 12th May and culminating on Glasgow Green for the Babcock Shettleston 10k on Sunday 29th May.
We aim to cater for Olympic athletes, serious club runners and those who are more social and recreational in their pursuits, at all of our events. There is a unique set of commemorative medals, featuring local architectural icons, every finisher in each race will receive one of these medals, together with a goody bag featuring a different running accessory from Start Fitness at each race. In addition there will be almost £6,000 in cash and Start Fitness vouchers on offer, across the series. Full details are displayed on our website at Babcock10kseries.co.uk. Every series entrant will be able to collect their specially designed Babcock 10k Series back-pack at the Helensburgh race or failing that in Dumbarton.
Start Fitness are also providing 40 spot prizes of running accessories, across the series.
Water will be provided for runners across the series. There will be plentiful supplies both at the 5k feeding station, in each race and at the finish.
Your Cooperation Would Be Appreciated Please: Our continued use of public roads, footpaths and cycleways is dependent upon your support and cooperation. Please observe the following guidelines in taking part in all events:
• The Helensburgh race will, for the first time,
benefit from a rolling road closure as the runners
enter each section of the course. The roads will
re-open behind the runners as the race progresses.
For your own safety, some slower runners may be
directed to run on the pavement by the marshals as sections of the course reopen to road traffic.
• Please follow the instructions of all Police officers, marshals and event staff. They are there to help you and keep you safe.
• Please don’t wear headphones as you won’t hear traffic or the instruction of marshals. You may be disqualified for failure to comply.
• Please keep left at all times especially on public roads but even on footpaths or cycleways as there may be faster runners approaching from either direction.
• Please run on the pavement when directed to do so.
• Please proceed with caution when you are advised of potential hazards.
• Every kilometre will be marked.
St. Andrew’s First Aid will be providing medical cover at each event: They will have 4 trained first aid staff on duty at each venue, together with a mobile first aid station, at the finish. Two of the team will be mounted on bikes and follow the runners around the course. If you have a medical condition please advise us in advance and complete the form on the back of your running number. If you are in distress and need medical attention either make your way to the mobile first aid station or ask a marshal for assistance. They will contact the first aid team via RAYNET communications who will be both around each course and stationed in the start finish area. Please try and tell us where you or the person in need of assistance is e.g. near the 4k point or an obvious landmark.
Each event will have a Help Desk to assist with any questions you may have. You can email the Help Desk in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a desk issuing Series backpacks in Helensburgh and Dumbarton for those who have entered all three races.
Please don’t cut down or deface your running number in any way, it contains our sponsors’ brands and your chip which records your time and position. Please secure it to the front of your vest with 4 safety pins. Pins will be available at each race but it helps if you bring your own. Please ensure you wear the correct number for the race you are running. You will see the venue printed beneath the number. If you are running in three races, you should receive three different numbers.
All individual, team and category awards will be presented at the end of the race, approximately between 8.30 and 9pm for evening events and between 11am and 12 noon for Shettleston. See each race for the location of the presentation. We will be joined by former Commonwealth 10,000m Gold Medallist Lachie Stewart who still holds the Scottish Native record of 28 mins and 11 seconds from 1970. He will also help with prize presentations, alongside senior representatives from our sponsors Babcock.
There will be a record bonus of £100 for any male or female winner who breaks a Series Record and a £50.00 bonus for a course record.
