    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    It was an early start so cold at this time of year with a few ice spots. The race was well organised and route well sign posted with great helpers, however some information on public transport, especially with the run being on a Sunday.
    The race involved several laps so being able to see the splits was fantastic (especially post race)

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Nice and simple race.show up and run .great commentary throughout the top half of the race aa you could hear from other side of Loch. Mostly flat so good pbs are possible.great cake at the finish.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I have only done big events when running this was simply easy access to the run and great when you finished just a short stroll to your car. Cakes and drinks at the end a nice wee touch
