Ardbeg Distillery is the generous sponsor of the 2016 Islay Half- Marathon .
Welcome to the Islay Half Marathon website
We regret to inform you that this years event will not be going ahead. We are a small team and it would be impossible to follow guidelines, with mostly all other large group gathering events on Islay being cancelled we have no option but to follow . Anyone already entered wishing to cancel and wishing a refund please return your race number along with bank details and a refund will be issued. The 2022 event will be held on 6 August. Thank you.
The Islay Half Marathon started in 1986 and involves a 13 mile, 192 yard run from the village of Bowmore on the Isle of Islay out to Islay Airport and back in a circular route. The run takes place amongst some of the most beautiful scenery that you will ever see.
Congratulations to the winners and well done to all runners in the 2019 Ardbeg Islay Half Marathon. Many thanks to everyone who took part in this excellent event!!
