You may be aware there have been some problems with the results from the Balfron 10K on Sunday 26 April, and we have been unable to give an update on the race or update the RRs Championship and League tables.
Following discussions between Peter Blackmore and some of those who ran, we have decided to publish the finishing places (without the times) so that we can update the tables. When the official results are announced we will publish them on here.
Please see the updated 2015 Road Running Championship and Leagues tables.
