Organiser's Description

The Road to the Isles Marathon & Festival of Running

Saturday 6th May 2023

After a fantastic day in Arisaig on 7th May 2022, we’re absolutely delighted that the Road to the Isles Events Marathon & Festival of Running is back again for 2023. We’ll be thrilled to see you here. 

For the uninitiated, the views along the route for all of our events are some of the best you could hope to experience anywhere in the world!  Based in the picturesque highland vilage of Arisaig, 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]. This is a great family running festival with something for everyone – and a spectacular destination, so bring your family, kids, friends and loved ones to the most beautiful part of the world for the most amazing running event.

Our Marathon & Festival of Running day will comprise the following events:

Provisional start times as follows:

Full Marathon (Early Bird £40/Full Price £47) – 9.30am
Half Marathon (Eearly Bird £35/Full Price £40) – 11.30am
10k (Early Bird £28/Full Price £30) – 12pm
5km (Early Bird £15 / Full Price £17) – 12.15pm

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 (Early Bird £23 / Full Price £26) – 10.30am

We loved our inaugural "Wee Run" of 400 meters [£2 on the day] and will be repeating this again for children 5yrs and under. 

The routes are now available on our main website

All competitors will receive a very sassy Road to the Isles Running Festival Tech T-Shirt.  Just in-put your shirt size when you sign up.  Sadly there's no t-shirts for "wee runners" but there will be lollipops.  There's also the option to buy a special limited edition Road to the Isles bespoke designed Buff to further commemorate what we hope will another amazing calendar running event.  

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 goes towards running further events and towards the running of our highly valued sport facility.  Come along, tell your friends, bring your family – it will be a great day out.  Let the training commence
