Skye Half Marathon

The route

MedalBananaLocal BeerT-Shirt
Overall :

Landscape : 8/10 Nice Landscape. (Note: The island has by far a lot more impressive landscapes that can not be compared to the landscapes of the route. They are though in places where they can not be connected in a half marathon route and if such a route was designed it would be a lot more difficult to organize a successful event)
Non Repeating Route : 10/10Only 20 meters are the same.
Difficulty : 7/10 There is quite a bit of elevation. Not a lot of flat places to catch your breath.
Easy to visit : 8/10 No need for a ferry but might be difficult to find a place to stay as it is a popular destination
Easy to participate : 8/10 There is a limit or condition restricting numbers ( I think 1000).
Facilities/Organization : 10/10
Good for personal best: 4/10 No. This race is good to enjoy the landscape
Will do it again  : yes.
