Going into the 14th year of this event we look forward to welcoming 250 runners to take part in what is increasingly one of the must do events on the Scottish running calendar.
Entry for this year’s event was in hot demand, so much so that when registration opened in October last year it was full within 24 hours! We’re pleased to see the event’s popularity soar over the years, and are also aware how much of that is due to the friendly and supportive welcome the runners receive from the Tiree community. So thank you everyone who’s helped at these events!
We’ve also had amazing generosity at the raffles which have added to the events fundraising to just short of £10,000 over the years for local groups and charities, particularly the Oban Mountain Rescue Team.
The 2019 Tiree 10k & Half Marathon will take place on Saturday 4th May, with kids races at 12pm and the 10k/HM starting at 2pm. Race HQ is An Talla. Kids can sign up on the day, but all other entry is now closed. The cafe will be open all day at An Talla.
As always we will do our best to minimise disruption, but please be aware of runners on the roads, particularly between 2pm and 4pm around the Heylipol – Balinoe – Hynish – Sandaig – Island House areas. We’ll put signs up in advance to give plenty of warning. Thank you everyone for working with us on this, and for your tolerance and patience. If there is anything we can do to improve any part of the event please do get in touch.
We’re now recruiting for the 2019 Event Team – it’s a fun way to be part of the event, and cheering on the runners is inspiring and something that’s hugely appreciated. If you could help either indoors at registration, or out on the course please do get in touch.
And lastly, running is one of those things that helps people in so many ways. From physical fitness to mental health, and from enjoying the fresh air to socialising with others. There’s been incredible stories over the years, and people taking part for sorts of different reasons, as well as simply to get a bit fitter. So come and help at the event, be inspired, and next year it could be you standing on the start line!
