LOOKING to set a goal for your new running regime? Want to get back into the swing of organised running for the 2014 summer season? If this is you then why not think about registering for one of the events in the Inverness Half Marathon running programme this spring.

Taking place on March 9th, the Inverness Half Marathon comprises the main race, a 5K Fun Run and 5K Team Attack events – meaning there is something on offer for everyone.

Woolly and Tig Stars to Join Inverness Fun Run

This week, top Scottish actor Colin McCredie visited our city with his family to show his support for the event and its official charity Highland Hospice. Team McCredie will be taking on the 5K Fun Run course come March, to the delight of local fans of their current CBeebies TV show, Woolly and Tig.

Colin, who is better known for his roles in Taggart, River City and the film Shallow Grave, used the visit as an opportunity to encourage others to get involved in this exciting active Inverness event, saying: “Anyone can do it! You can jog it or even walk if you have to!”

Inverness Half Marathon Starts Summer Running Season

The event, which is sponsored by Global Energy Group, also presents a great opportunity for more serious runners, coming as it does right at the start of the summer running season, providing the perfect personal launchpad for Highland athletes and visitors from outside the area who are aiming high in 2014.

Half Marathon organiser Malcolm Sutherland of Caledonian Concepts said: “We are really proud that in this, its 30th year, the Inverness ½ Marathon continues to extend such a broad appeal, attracting everyone from first-time families, like Colin’s, to serious athletes in training for full marathons.

“Who knows we could even be hosting athletes looking to practice in advance of this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow!

  • The Global Energy Inverness ½ Marathon, 5K Team Attack and 5K Fun Run 2014 take place on Sunday, 9th March. Anyone wanting to take part in any of the races can enter online at www.invernesshalfmarathon.co.uk.  Closing date for entries is Friday, 19th February.
