The Road to the Isles Half Marathon 2017 is fully booked.
The race will take place on Saturday April 29, with all proceeds going to the Mallaig Pool and Leisure refurbishment programme.
There are still some spaces left in the 10k, 5k and Walk on the Wild Side events.
A pool spokesperson said: ‘If you would like to get involved without actually having to pull on a pair of trainers, we would love to hear from any volunteers who would like to help out and marshal along the route. There’s a free t-shirt and some paella in it for you.’
