Race Listing

RunnersWe’re entering a slightly quieter period in the race calendar as we approach August. There are still some tantalising events on offer though. Islay Half Marathon returns to the Hebridean island on Saturday. Back on the mainland, hill running fans are spoiled for choice with the Creag Dubh and Beinn Lee Hill Races. Participants will get value for money at Toward for a Tenner Half Marathon, running along the beautiful coast road to the south of Dunoon down to Toward for the measly sum of - you guessed it - £10!
