Kintyre Way Relay double entries and needs your help! Share

More than 100 entrants have now signed up for the fourth annual Kintyre Way Relay which takes place on May 1, starting from Tarbert at 6am.

Entries in all categories are more than double last year’s numbers, with 24 walkers doing 31 miles along the path from Tarbert to Skipness, Clachan and Tayinloan, 28 walkers along the 18 miles from Torrisdale via Carradale to Tayinloan, 44 runners in relay teams sharing out the 66 mile race rout from Tarbert to Campbeltown ; and five ultra-distance runners who will each run the entire 66 miles in one day.

This year’s walkers include a large group from the Royal Bank of Scotland head office in Glasgow, who are raising funds for cancer research  at the Beatson Oncology Centre. 

The Kintyre Way Relay is becoming well known for its hospitality element, with refreshments provided by the locals at five different community halls along the way, and the “Runners Revels” feast and Ceilidh in the evening.

Entries can be submitted online.  Full details at www.kintyrewayrelay.co.uk

Now this is where you can help out!  Organisers are looking for support and marshals for the Campbeltown end of the Kintyre Way Replay.  Is anyone able to help out on Saturday 1st May 2010 between 3pm and 8pm for one or two hours?  After leaving Tarbert at 6am in the morning the first runners are expected to arrive in Campbeltown at around 3.30pm onwards and we are looking for marshals at Gobagrennan turn off, Millknowe Stores and at Lochend turn off to ensure runners are ushered in the right direction and look after the road crossing.  A few people are also needed at the Aqualibrium to check off and look after the finishers.

Help is also needed with one or two volunteer drivers to take runners back to Tayinloan in the Sports Council mini bus.

If you help in anyway please contact Sid Gallagher on 01586 552294 or by e-mail at sid@limecraigs.freeserve.co.uk

This is a really unique event that is growing each year and is building on Kintyre reputation as one of the most friendly event organisers in the country!  Not to forget the running too!
