This challenging half marathon sees runners, walkers and cyclists circumnavigate the main road around the Orkney island of Rousay.
The Rousay Lap has become one of the most popular fixtures on the Orkney athletic calendar. An event with a real family feel, participants run, cycle or walk from the pier around the island, taking in some spectacular scenery as they go. The event is organised by the Rousay, Egilsay & Wyre Development Trust and is open to all ages, although under 16s must have their entry form signed by a parent or guardian, and under 12s must be accompanied by an adult. All finishers will be issued with a certificate and a Rousay Lap Half Marathon medal at the finish line. The event is free but donations are welcomed and the surplus distributed to voluntary organisations on the islands.
