The Barrathon

The Barrathon is a very special event. It takes place every year on the first weekend of July, usually one week before the Harris Half for those of you that might be interested in a cycling between them.  It’s one of those wonderful community organised events and it feels like the whole of Barra gets involved!

The route takes you on a wonderful route along what is almost the only road on Barra. It goes round the coast, back to Castlebay, across the start line and a couple of hundred meters further to the finish line.

After you finish the race you are welcome to unwind in the swimming pool in the community centre next to the finish. Your entry also gets you a ticket for the legendary buffet also in the community hall next to the finish, all home cooked.  You also buy a ticket for the ceilidh the evening after the race, everyone goes, and tbh it’s worth doing the Barrathon just for the ceilidh. It has performances from local musician’s and dancers and it oozes Scottish culture.

If you want to take part you need to be quick. You register your interest on their website and they send you an email with the entry date and time. You need to be sat in front of your laptop waiting for that moment because the event sells out every year in about 10 minutes! There are only something like 250 places. I normally camp, there’s two camp sites and lots of places to wild camp. The island and its adjoining island Vatersay have amazing beaches if you have time to sunbath or wild swim.


Well done Duncan and thanks for the write up!

Huntly Sprint & novice races

Three of our local athletes in action at Huntly Sprint and Novice races this year.

Monikie Scottish Sprint Triathlon Champs

Three local athletes in action at the Scottish Sprint Triathlon Champs in Monikie. Graham Whyte, Luke Williams & Dave Roberts. 

Both Graham and Luke took their respective age group titles, with Graham finishing in 1.13.54 & Luke in a swift 1.04.51 to take 4th overall. A lot of hard work paying off for these two local athletes.  

Not phased by all the carbon on show at the Scottish Championships Dave was competing in his 1st open water Triathlon and finished in 1.19.16 which put him 72nd overall & 12th vet. He summed it up as a great learning experience, so hopefully the first of many more!

Well done all excellent efforts all around. Check out the full results here.

Glen Moray Sportive

Laura, Nigel, Andrew and Stephanie went over to take part in the Glen Moray Sportive on another blue sky day... we've certainly been spoilt this summer it seems!

The route is approximately 120km winding its way from Elgin through the Cairngorms to Grantown then back towards Forres before completing the loop by heading back towards Elgin again.

Laura was the 2nd female overall in the event.

Well done everyone!
