Road to the Isles Festival of Running

The Road to the Isles Marathon & Festival of Running

Saturday 11th May 2019

With almost 600 runners enjoying a great day in 2018, we are making Mallaig Pool & Leisure’s Road to the Isles Half Marathon Event even better for 2019!  Hold on to your water bottle – this year, for those who want to step it up, and for those who want something a bit more challenging, we’re adding a Full Marathon to our festival of running day.  Not only that, we’ve redrawn the routes to give you some variety, and moved the start and finish line to the beautiful coastal village of Arisaig.  If you thought the views were spectacular last year, then you’re in for an even sweeter treat.  You’ll be running along some of the most  beautiful minor roads in the UK with amazing uninterrupted views to the islands of Muck, Rum and Eigg, and alongside the pristine white caribbean beaches of Silver Sands and Camusdarach [google them, they’re amazing].

Provisional start times as follows:

Full Marathon (£37) – 9.30am

10k (£27) – 12pm
5km (£15) – 12.30pm

And you can even pre-order a cool Event T shirt for £5 when you enter!

If running isn’t your thing, or you have family coming with you who want to get involved, then we also have our “Walk on the Wild Side”, a walking event that follows the Half Marathon route!

Walk on the Wild Side (£25) – 10am

We look forward to welcoming you and thank you for your support.  Mallaig Pool & Leisure is a social enterprise run by a small dedicated team as well as volunteers from the community. All profit from this event will go towards our exciting refurbishment project to include a brand new cafe.  Come along, tell your friends, bring your family – it will be a great day out.  Let the training commence.
