Babcock 10K Runners

10K Trilogy Back In 2024

2024's Babcock 10K Series has just launched...

Dates for next year’s Babcock 10K Series have been released and entries are now open! Runners entering by 31 December will benefit from an Early Bird Christmas Offer, which provides a £5 discount on Series entries, but hurry as this will be reserved for the first 500 entries only.

The Babcock 10K Series will see the Shettleston event take place on 12 May, Dumbarton on 23 May and finish up with Helensburgh on 30 May. Dumbarton and Helensburgh are Thursday evening events with Shettleston on a Sunday morning.

Babcock 10K Series Chairman, Kevin Johnson, was delighted with this year’s series, which produced a course and series record for Dundee’s talented teenager, Natasha Phillips, at Shettleston, where she stopped the clock in 32:57. This was the fastest time by an under-twenty UK athlete in over 20 years.

Gateshead’s Calum Johnson also set new figures for Shettleston in taking the men’s course record down to 29:45 for the first sub-30 minute clocking on Glasgow Green.

Kenny Douglas, Managing Director of Babcock at HMNB Clyde, highlighted that the Babcock 10K Series motivated employees, business partners and the local community to take to the streets and run – whether it was for personal fitness, recreation or more serious competition.

Babcock have been involved in the 10K Series since 2017 when they took over from Polaroid, who had sponsored the series since 1983. Start Fitness continues as the event’s Running Retail Partner and there will be more than £6,000 in cash and Start Fitness vouchers for the leading individuals, teams and age group winners. The Community Advertiser series will continue their sponsorship of the first Local Male and Female prizes, at each race.

The Babcock Family Fun Run, which was a new 2K event on Glasgow Green (Shettleston) this year, will continue in 2024. There are unique commemorative medals for every finisher in each race and series entrants will receive a distinctive long-sleeved top for signing up for three races. A different item of commemorative merchandise will be given to every finisher, at each race, provided by Start Fitness.
