Harris Half Marathon and Fun Run

The Isle of Harris Half Marathon and Fun Run events are taking place on Saturday, July 6th.

Sport Harris are hoping to see loads of young ones taking part again in the Fun Run - there is no age limit for it (young or old) but the very young should have an adult running with them. It’s just under two miles, and can be run, jogged or walked.

Registration for both events is from 10am to 12.15 pm at the Community Centre, Tarbert. The Fun Run Bus then leaves the Tarbert Tourist Information car park at approx 1.35pm, with the race itself starting at approx 1.45 pm at Kendibig and finishing at the ferry terminal.

The Half Marathon bus leaves Tarbert at 12.30pm - runners should look up the details on: http://www.srac.org.uk/harrishalf.htm

The Fun Run costs £2 (under 16s) and £4 (adults). Prize giving is at 4pm with trophies for males and females in the following categories:

1st, 2nd, 3rd overall; 1st locals; 1st under 9s; 1st under 11s and 1st under 13s.

Come and cheer on the Fun Run and the Half Marathon runners who will be finishing their races at the ferry terminal from about 2pm onwards.
