    About the event
    From the organiser

    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 Half Marathon in 2018

      Be ready for a hilly course & stunning scenery. I expected it -so was not surprised. The only thing that surprised me was the fantastic weather.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The only linear course in the CTS series, running here will nourish your soul like nowhere else on earth. The Northumberland coastline boasts some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in the UK and is best known for its sweeping sandy beaches, rolling dunes, high rocky cliffs, and isolated islands. This striking landscape is steeped in history and there are few sights on earth that compare with Bamburgh Castle and its expansive and exposed bayside setting.

    A host of conservation sites, including two National Nature Reserves, testify to the great variety of wildlife and habitats found in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once here, you will feel as far removed from the pressures of modern life as it is possible to be, so lace those trail shoes tight, take a deep breath and tune into the wind and waves as you let the stunning widescreen panorama unfold!

    • Did the Ultra in 2018

      This was a truly amazing course and I ached more after this than any other ultra race to date due to the sand dunes and the overall nature of the course. I've ran a few ultras but the Northumberland course was my first on sand dunes / beeches and consequently offered a brand new exciting experience for me (and the use of my muscles under very different circumstances). It's great course event for training and toughening up different muscles in your legs. Even though after my EnduranceLife Ultra in Anglesey where I felt better prepared simply because Id experienced the way these races are organised, I cannot fault the pre-race information. Detailed documentation is given, the web site counts down to the event with any additional information you might need and you get an update a week before finalising the communication. Altogether you are kept very well informed and able to prepare for all eventualities. This is also continued during the mandatory race brief on the day. You can't fail to go too wrong in your preparations. They are good.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Guidance on mandatory kit was a bit sparse - I had to search for something that was a "wind-breaker" jacket as I did not know what would be acceptable. Wasn't checked in the end but I had something at least. Course was great - maybe mention to people that they may have to run through a stream into the sea!!Finishing inside Bamburgh Castle was an epic finish but, it was a shame that spectators were sparse there as they had to pay castle entry. Helpful hints: Don't start too fast!! The beaches are draining so you need to save energy for those sections!

    • Did the Mamores Half Marathon in 2018

      This was my first proper trail run, and I'm totally sold. The weather was interesting, sideways rain and snow on the hills, but everyone was in great spirits. We were properly waterproofed up, I ran the entire thing in a shell skiing jacket and proper job Salomon trail shoes - it's worth buying all the kit and doing it properly - getting cold would have been a nightmare. Although saying that, there were a few heros running the marathon in a kilt and a cotton t-shirt so it's really up to you! The course was epic, we set off straight up a really steep hill, it was first trail run so I was like woah here we go, but there were lots of people walking. Our feet were wet by about mile 2 but I couldn't have cared less. It was great fun just powering through the little streams, jumping over rocks and scrambling up hills. The race just flew by, much more so than any London road run I've done. I loved it, would recommend to anyone - beginners and pros alike. The scenery is well worth the trip.
    • Did the Glencoe Marathon in 2018

      Epic trail marathon! I ran in 2018 and the weather was not perfect, but it didn't matter as the scenery is stunning. While it is mostly running on a 'trail' there is plenty of real off-roading. The elevation is about 4,000ft in total which is a lot, but there are sections where no one is running... just too steep. Easily the most scenic running i've ever done. Very well organised, not sure how they got the drinks stops so far up the hill. I'll be back.
