Mull Half Marathon and 10k
Saturday 25th July 2020

Postponed to Saturday 23rd July 2022

Due to the uncertainty of the ongoing restrictions, we are very sorry to say that we have made the decision to cancel this year’s event for the second year running.  Whilst the potential road map looks like the event may be possible, we would need certainty to plan the event well in advance.

Your entry will automatically transferred to Saturday 23rd July 2022, so you only need to get in touch with us if you would prefer a refund.  

Keep safe and keep running, and we look forward to welcoming you to next year’s event.
Details and times will be confirmed at the beginning of 2022.

Stay the weekend and celebrate with us!
