MOK Half Marathon Voted No 1 in Runners World

Postby Pans Lass » Thu Jan 06, 2011 4:49 pm

Runners World published their 2010 Ultimate Race Guide in their February edition and the Mull of Kintyre Half Marathon was number 1 in the UK!

RW - "It was good enough for Paul McCartney and Wings, so it's surely a perfect setting for a race. the lure of this weekend-long festival of racing lies in the overall event experience as much as the race itself. Sure, the flat route along Campbeltown Loch and Westport Beach is a feast for the eyes, but how many races do you know that offer a post-race ceilidh and a song-writing festival?"

This year RW in their annual review of races as well as being guided by particpants votes online they've categorised the top-rated races.

Mull of Kintyre Half Marathon was voted top Half Marathon in the UK along with being No 1 for Atmosphere and No 1 for beginners!

RW "The finish area has a positive carnivalesque atmosphere with everything from whisky-tasting for the grown-ups to face painting and a milk bar for the kids. And everybody's invited to swing a (tired) leg at the post-race ceilidh."

"This race makes it into the beginner category for much of the same reasons as it made it into the atmosphere and half-marathon top 10 - it's just a race that's really good fun to run, the vibe is friendly and the scenery is enough to distract from any fatigue."

Brilliant achievement indeed !!

Yes, a fantastic achievement, in such a short time. Great races, great organisation, great audience participation, great volunteers, and, generally, a great weekend all round. Well done to the organisers, you deserve a great big pat on the back. No 1 in RW is a tremendous accolade for this event.
