With regret, Mallaig Pool & Leisure announces today the cancellation of the Road to the Isles Marathon & Festival of Running which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 9th May 2020.
After much deliberation, and the unprecedented situation everyone is facing with COVID-19, public health has to be our top priority. We appreciate this will be a disappointment, however, we feel we have no other option with the intensity of the virus due to peak in the month of May.
We are really grateful to all our volunteers who have worked so hard on race logistics, and are now going through the process of dismantling it.
We will be in touch over the next few days with all our lovely runners who had signed up to the race, and will post updates on our social media channels.
All runners who have a place for the 2020 event will receive a full refund of their 2020 entry fee, but sadly minus their administration fee. Mallaig Pool & Leisure is a Social Enterprise & Scottish Registered Charity. The loss of this income will have an impact on our business, so we hope you might all support us for future races and we’ll see you next year when the Road to the Isles Marathon & Festival of Running will be back on Saturday 8th May 2021. Entry Central will open shortly – let’s look forward with positivity. Stay well everyone, be kind to your neighbours, and look after each other. Keep running.
I hope we might see you next year,
The Road to the Isles Marathon & Festival of Running
