On May 30, 2015, Scotland’s Stranraer Rotary will hold its third annual walk/run over the stunning marathon length of the Mull of Galloway Trail, from the Mull of Galloway to Stranraer. The 26 mile route across mostly rough path will begin at 10am.
For the less adventurous, there will be a 10 mile walk/run from Sandhead to Stranraer over rough path and tarred roads with light traffic. It will start at 11:30am at Tigh na Mara Hotel, Sandhead.
There will be an entrance fee of £25 per person for the longer course and £15 for the short course. This includes transportation from the start at Stranraer marina to the Mull of Galloway or Sandhead, and a barbecue and complimentary drinks at the finish.
Unlike previous years, there will not be a yachting component to the race, but there will be places on Sunday when yachts will host runners for a (weather permitting) trip round Ailsa Craig. These places will be limited and so there may be a ballot.
Various types of accommodation are available and organisers can advise how to maximize the enjoyment of your stay.
