Experience the peace and tranquillity of the remote Isle of Skye. Famed for our community involvement, friendly atmosphere and closed roads, this event sells out every year.
This Chip timed loop course gradually climbs out of Portree for the first 1.5 miles before a steep climb at Drumuie leading to a now fast downhill 2 miles to the Kensalyre turn. The race then follows a single track road through spectacular Isle of Skye countryside including the Snizort river.
Finishers can look forward to a bottle of Cuillin Brewery Ale and other goodies.
The 2021 Skye Half will be focused on sustainability. Our race T-Shirts are from rerunclothing.org offering a chance for runners to secure a Skye Half Technical T-Shirt without the environmental impact of a traditional race tee. This is not the only change to the way we do things, from water, to medals, to merchandise; we have taken the time to lessen the impact of the way we do things.
There is also a Fun Run (manually timed) with a fantastic bespoke Isle of Skye medal for all finishers and great age group category prizes. Entries are also online in advance.
