The biggest event on the Stornoway Running and Athletics Club calendar is almost here, the Stornoway Half Marathon on 25th May!
This year the Half Marathon is already sold out and there are just 10 spots left in the 10k, between both races and the fun run up to 550 runners are expected. This will probably be the biggest ever road running event in the Western Isles! Just under two thirds of those entered will be travelling to the island to take part, from all across the UK and as far as the US and Australia.
A lot of helpers and marshals (up to 70 marshals) are needed around the town and castle grounds route to make it run smoothly (excuse the pun), if anyone is able to help on the day the organising committee would be really grateful.
SRAC Senior Sub-Committee said: "We need folk who are available on Saturday 25th May from roughly 9.30am to 1pm. But if you can only help for part of that time, that would still be great."
