Fun Run



Age 5 & over

  • 1.5 miles road running


Experience the peace and tranquility of the beautiful, remote Isle of Skye, the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides, and home to some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes.

Renowned for its strong community, friendly welcome, and a race run on closed roads, the Skye Half Marathon is a bucket list race. Skye, from the Norse meaning Misty Isle, will enchant you with its dramatic mountain ranges dominated by the rocky slopes of the Cuilin, miles of spectacular coastline from the Atlantic to the West and North Sea to the East, and its complex and captivating history featuring the Clans of MacDonald and MacLeod, its castles, churches and Brochs. 

The Skye Half Marathon is a chip timed loop that climbs gradually away from Portree for the first 1.5 miles, on to Drumuie before a fast downhill 2 miles to the Kensaleyre turn. The route then follows a single-track road through spectacular countryside, at times beside Skye’s longest River, the River Snizort, famed for its salmon and sea trout and fished by fishermen from across the globe.

All Skye Half Marathon finishers will receive a unique commemorative medal as well as some extra race goodies. If you’ve chosen to sign up for the Fun Run, this will be chip timed, and finishers will also receive an original bespoke medal. There will be age group category prizes as well as spot prizes.

Join for a race to remember.
