Kirkcudbright Academy Half Marathon
Saturday 28th May 2022
For the latest updates - see the Race Info page
In 1983 Harry Marland, a teacher at Kirkcudbright Academy, started the Half Marathon as a fundraiser for extra-curricular activities, equipment and projects for the pupils.
Sadly Harry passed away in 2016 but the annual Marathon still runs on, and the funds raised for school are just as much needed and appreciated as they ever were.
Fun for all the family!
This is a festival of three events consisting of a half marathon distance Walk starting at 9:00am. The Half Marathon and 10K running events start at 11:00am. Sorry, there will be no Fun Run this year, due to Covid restrictions.This event takes place in Scotland's artists' town of Kirkcudbright, located on the beautiful south coast of Dumfries & Galloway.
This event is organised by Race Directors Richard Nash and Liz Kettle with the Kirkcudbright Academy Parent Council and run by volunteer pupils, teachers, janitors and parents. In fact the whole town becomes involved in the big day, and thanks go to Annie’s Aiders, Douglas Swan and Sons, Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities, and Kirkcudbright Rotary Club.
