Barrathon 2015 - The Results
Despite strike action affecting ferry services, over 200 runners still rose to the initial challenge of just getting to Barra, before completing this, the 16th Barrathon.
Weather conditions were fair, with a tailwind helping runners for the first half of the course, although they had to battle a headwind on the much hillier east side of the island.
Ray Ward of HBT won the overall race for the second consecutive year, with a time of 1:17:12. The first female home was Megan Mowbray, also HBT, with a time of 1:30:14. Uist Road Runners, made up of Johnny Lawson, Greig Glendinning and Nea MacInnes took the team prize, with a cumulative time of 4:06:11, just ahead of HB Team with their time of 4:06:41 (Ray Ward, Douglas Tullie and Jon Rathjen).
Following a sumptuous seafood buffet, those runners that are still standing will be entertained by the infamous Vatersay Boys at the annual Barrathon ceilidh, the proceeds of which are donated to MacMillan Cancer and other local charities.
The results for the Barrathon, Fun Run and Junior Fun Run are available as race reports or data using the menus.
Barrathon 2015 - Ups and Downs
With the strike finished and the ferries sailing again, the only the ups and downs left for the runners to negotiate were along the route.
