This was the last year of the Fun Run.
The old Fun Run route took you over a 4.5 mile course along the road. From the school, runners went west, turned towards Torlum then on through to the main road where they headed south, until they could turn back towards the school. The final leg had a pavement, but for much of the route runners followed the road. This race was open to all runners and walkers over 12 years old.
The entire run was on roads, and included the main road running north-south road. The road here is flanked by ditches, so care was required. This unfortunately meant that it is not suitable for pushchairs, nor wheelchair users who were not able to enter the race.
The number of participants had been low for a while. It took several volunteers to host this race alone, and it had been challenging to find people who are able to commit to the helping in all the roles required on the day.
With more races of 5km and 10km distance being held throughout Uist, there are many more opportunities for people to run this intermediate distance.
