Take part in the Fun Run. The largest event of its kind on the Island, starting immediately after the Half Marathon.
Taking advantage of the closed Half Marathon roads and quiet Portree back streets, it’s a safe event for all ages. With all runners receiving medal, everyone is a winner in this race. This year sees the launch of the greenest medal we could find, it's free from plastic and you can plant it. We are always looking for ways to reduce the impact of our races on the environment and our handmade Fun Run Seeded Medals are:
- made from 100% recycled paper & card
- filled with wildflower seeds
- printed on 100% biodegradable materials
- hung using 100% sustainable & biodegradable ribbon made from plant based tencel
So admire your well earned medal, show it off to friends and family and when you've had enough, break it up and plant it in some compost with a little water. Then watch it grow into beautiful wild flowers, you're happy and so are the bees. The ribbon is biodegradable but will take some time so maybe find another use for it, gift wrap bows or hair bow
