This is a friendly half marathon, now in its seventh year, which is growing in size, but still relatively small due to its island location. The event is deliberately timed for the end of the season when most other island races have taken place. The half marathon route starts on the Isle of Berneray, off the north cost of North Uist, near the Gatliff Trust Hostel, it crosses a causeway to North Uist and finishes in Lochmaddy at the Hamersay House Hotel, who are the sponsor of the race. There is a bus laid-on to take participants from Lochmaddy to the start, also doing a pick-up from Berneray ferry terminal for those coming from Lewis or Harris.

The route of the race is gently undulating, but is not as challenging as certain island courses - there are no killer hills! We can however guarantee that it will be one of the most scenic races you will do all year, with sea views for virtually the whole way. The entire route is rural and on surfaced roads. Our sponsors will once again kindly be providing lunch at the finish for all participants.
