Entries for Inverness Half Marathon have proving more popular than ever.
It will be the first half marathon of 2020, taking place on March 8, and people can sign up now.
Over the past eight years, entries have increased by 74% and the 5K is also becoming more popular. Both races sold out early in 2018 and 2019 so prospective runners are being urged to sign up soon.
This year, SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) is one of the event’s official charity partners, alongside Alzheimer Scotland, The Archie Foundation, Highland Hospice and Marie Curie.
Islay Rackham, community fundraiser at SAMH, said: “We’re delighted to be an official charity partner for the Inverness Half Marathon in 2020, and hope to see lots of people signing up as part of Team SAMH. Your fundraising will help us to raise awareness, promote good mental health, and support people in Scotland affected by mental health problems.”
Malcolm Sutherland, director of Inverness Half Marathon, added: “As we enter 2020, it’s great to see so many people sign up for Inverness Half Marathon. Whether running helps people to get mentally fit or they are doing the half marathon for other reasons, the course is an ideal way to get set up for the year.”
Entry closes on February 18, subject to capacity.
