11 Jun 17
Thank you for your interest in the 31st Hoy Half Marathon.
The entrance fee is £14 for SAF members and £16 for non members. This covers registration, transport on the island, drinks en route, trophies, medals and certificates. Any profit produced is donated to local charities.
If you prefer to pay by cheque, you cannot use this website to enter. Instead, you must post a paper form and cheque to the Race Organisers and await confirmation of a place. Email for details.
SORRY, BUT WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER REFUNDS OR DEFERMENT IF YOU FIND YOURSELF UNABLE TO TAKE UP YOUR RACE PLACE
It is emphasised that the course is not only scenic but also extremely hilly and it is essential that runners who wish to complete the course should train adequately and take advantage of the 5 drink stations where water and dilute juice will be available. The race organisers wish to make it clear that all runners take part at their own risk. Anyone with doubts as to their fitness or ability should seek medical advice.
The Half Marathon complies with SAF rules and therefore entrants must be at least 18.

Their music combines traditional songs from the north east of Scotland with original compositions which draw on influences from history, folklore and personal experience. Jenny’s passion for music lies in her interest in traditional folk song combined with the enjoyment of creating fresh new compositions.
Over the last few decades Jonny has toured extensively with ‘Old Blind Dogs’ who won the Trad Awards album of the year in 2004 and he also plays in the critically acclaimed trio ‘Up In the Air’ and duo ‘Clype’. "Outstanding...spine-tingling...properly inspirational" Folk Radio UK
