Road to the Isles Festival of Running

Though the Road to the Isles half marathon is a challenging road race, it is the scenery that will really take your breath away on this route. Every year, runners return to enjoy the beauty of the west coast and the friendly atmosphere at the finish line. The half marathon starts at Beasdale Station and follows the old Road to the Isles through Arisaig, Traigh - where the 10k will join in - and Morar into Mallaig, where the race finishes at Mallaig & District Swimming Pool. The undulating route provides an enjoyable challenge for all abilities and sights such as the Silver Sands of Morar will boost your morale all the way to the finish line. Water stations will be provided at three locations throughout the race.

  • Did the EMF Marathon in 2015

    One of my fave races.Excellent atmosphere and great scenery jogging around the capital
  • Did the event in 2017

    The EMF 10k presents quite the challenge for anyone wanting to take on a shorter route. The race starts and ends in the shadow of Arthur's Seat and after a relatively easy stretch it's not long before you have your first big, long and steady, climb round Arthur's Seat itself. Watch out as you start this strech as space can sometimes be at a bit of premium.Relief, of a sort, comes just before kilometre 3 when the course levels out a little. As you round the corner the views of the Pentland Hills are fantastic and after a short climb it's not long before you get a view of Edinburgh itself and you're heading round Duddingston Loch. Just before the 6km mark you'll find the only water station on the course along with toilets. There's a short cobbled stretch through Duddingston Village before going round the other side of the Loch. Watch out at kilometre 8 - there's a sneaky climb that's caught out a fair few runners in the past! Once that's out of the way though it's pretty much down hill all the way to finish up outside Our Dynamic Earth. When you finish you're guided down through the undercourse of Our Dynamic Earth to collect your medal, goody bag and water. There's a baggage drop just outside Our Dynamic Earth so if you've taken advantage of that you don't have far to go to collect your belongings. The EMF events are usually well organised with easy registrationand plenty of information on the website. The medal usually has some kind of Edinburgh theme and this year featured a keyring element indicating the distance. The race chip is embedded in the race number so no faffing about with a shoe tag before or after the race. My number arrived in plenty of time before the event.It was a bit of a warm day this year so I think I poured as much water over myself as I drank!
  • Did the event in 2015

    EMF is the flagship event in Edinburgh but it's unfortunate GSI (organisers) are only worried about the money.  Run this event a few times and they have run out of medals/goody bags before the final runner and the finishers tshirt is generic i.e. doen't have the distance you run printed on it.The route isn't special, theres c. 10 other races that use the same 5k/10k route but the other races you will get a better experience for your money.A race possibly to do becuase it's 'Edinburgh' but nothing special and one I'm not rushing to do again.

  • Did the event in 2017

    This is a unique race along the West Sands in St Andrews. You register in town the day before. It is easy to register. You can register on the day too. Local businesses give you a fudge dohnut and a beer at the end. There is a live band and a prize giving after the race too. Which gives a great atmosphere.They used chip timing this year the tag was huge and awkward to put on trainers and made it more serious and less of a fun run. Medal was wooden not as good as previous years where they have been bottle openers built into the medal which was brilliant. The race was high up the beach this year which meant deep sand for 400m at start and finish. Usually the tide is further out so its firmer.Overall an enjoyable race.

Anita Nott Women Only Run
Newcastle upon Tyne, North East, United Kingdom

The Anita Nott Memorial Run is a women-only 5K run through Jesmond Dene, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Anita was a member of Heaton Harriers for a number of years. Anita raced in all disciplines from cross country to road and track and produced some outstanding results. As well as regularly racing for the club and being amongst one of our top performing ladies (winning the Davidson Shield on a number of occasions and the local 5k Sunshine run) she also immersed herself in the organization of club events and also supported many of our younger runners who were just starting out.

This tremendous support and enthusiasm for the club and its members and a real love for running was evident in all that Anita did. Anita never made excuses as to why she couldnt do something she just got out and did it. She was very keen to promote veteran running and as such welcomed generous prize structures in local races that highlighted the strength in depth of the veteran field. For this reason, we have an extensive prize list for our womens only race to encourage everyone to take part and remember not only why we run but show everyone just how well we do it!

Anita tragically lost her life in September 2006 whilst out on a training run. As a club we were heartbroken to lose such an amazing person and as such decided to dedicate our womens only run to her name. This race has been well supported over the years. Anita was very keen to see women getting involved in running and would have welcomed all abilities taking part in the event.

We ask that you come and support our event and remember a great athlete! This could be the start of your athletic journey!

  • Did the event in 2017

    This is a local course for me but that's not why I do it. It's a lovely semi-trail route. Lovely scenery as you run along, the start can be a bit tight through a narrow stretch but once past that then you're away. There is a hilly but on 2k but you're fresh then and then you can just chug along taking in the views...until 8k...then you have a monster hill to climb. Every year I say I will complete in one go...and every year I get closer. But not managed the whole lot yet...next year then eh?Good fun and pretty race.
  • Did the event in 2016

    Ran this twice and it is the hilliest course Ive ran.Mix of trail and paths make this a great introduction to light trail running. Some sections can be boggy/wet so dont wear those new shiny trainers!At the start there are a couple of pinch points where Ive had to walk as you cant move but they clear up quickly. Challenging course with lots of ups and downs. The final hill is a real challenge.Something a bit diferent from usual road races and generally not too many people.Technical T-Shirt at the end.

It has been held on the first Saturday in September every year since 1951, bar one, when the elements won.
