Experience the peace and tranquility of the beautiful, remote Isle of Skye, the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides, and home to some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes. Renowned for its strong community, friendly welcome, and a race run on closed roads, the Skye Half Marathon sells out every year.

Travel Tips

We are an island destination which makes our race all the more unique.  Travel however is pretty straightforward and we are more accessible than you might think.  We have a toll free bridge linking us to the mainland, as well as regular ferry sailings from Mallaig.  You can get to the Isle of Skye from the Highland capital of Inverness.  Inverness Airport has interconnecting flights from London airports.
