Stornoway Half Marathon And 10K
The Stornoway Half marathon is a popular island race that has been taking place annually since 1984, making 2019 the 36th edition. The Stornoway 10k was added to the event in 2010 and has also proved very popular since. The route is an exciting mix of road and trail, firstly taking runners on a tour of greater Stornoway then onto the beautiful forest trails of the Lews Castle Grounds. Don’t worry the trails are very runnable and suitable for road shoes! The Half Marathon starts and both races finish right in the heart of the town centre on the inner harbour next to the marina which is always full of cheering fans and a great atmosphere.
Post-race you will experience island hospitality at its best with a large post-race buffet and epic Ceilidh in the evening to dance away the night, always great craic and a friendly warm welcome for all!
