What makes a great run?…….How about sandy beaches, blue skies and an unspoilt landscape? Tiree Ultramarathon offers ALL of that and it also helps that it’s pretty flat too!
This year’s Tiree Ultramarathon takes place on Sunday 4th September. 35 miles of stunning Hebridean scenery and I’m fairly sure some good times after you’ve reached the finish line too.
Ultra, 10k or Half Marathon
The Tiree Ultramarathon is fully subscribed for this year, but keep your eye out on their Facebook group page for cancellations. What more motivation do you need to start training for next year than the thought of visiting one of the loveliest islands in the Inner Hebrides? If the Ultramarathon is a bit too much for you, there’s always the Tiree 10k and Half Marathon which are taking place on the 29th April 2023 – you could think of that as the warm up event!
Tiree Fitness Merchandise
On isle20 you can buy Tiree Ultramarathon hoodies and other merchandise. If you are taking part this year, be sure to buy your hoodie on isle20 and arrange for collection on the day! Visit the Tiree Fitness isle20 Shop HERE
A True Community Event
The event is a massive community effort and wouldn’t be possible with the army of volunteers who make the event possible. Like all good island events it’s the people who make it happen! The event is also sponsored by Tiree Distillery who make the delicious Tyree Gin on the island, a welcome celebratory tipple for when you complete the route! Here are some previous winners with their medals and Tyree Gin! You can buy Tyree Gin by clicking HERE.
So, have we manage to convince you to dust off your running shoes for next year’s Ultra, Half or 10k? In that case you might be looking for accommodation too? If so, check out isleholiday for holiday accommodation.
