Barrathon 2012

Have your say

A RECORD 250 runners completed the recently held Barrathon event on the Isle of Barra.

The half marathon was won by Andrew Laycock in one hour 20 minutes. A further 30 runners took part in the Fun Run and 51 in the Junior Fun Run.

The Barrathon is run by a highly committed and enthusiastic group of individuals who make every effort to make the event a success.

This year their work was recognised by the Volunteer Centre, Western Isles who chose the Committee and helpers as the ‘organisation of the year’ in the Volunteer Awards 2012.

Last year the event raised £4,000 for local charities.
