Tayvallich will once again play host to the Taynish Run Festival on Saturday May 12 to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The race will finish at Tayvallich village hall, with all participants running through the picturesque Taynish National Nature Reserve on a route of their choice.

There’s a 6.8-mile run along the reserve’s more winding trails or a flatter 10km run along the woodland’s spinal road.

Spectacular views can be enjoyed along either route and runners may also spot some of the reserve’s wildlife, including otter, deer, red squirrels and ospreys.

Race organiser Colin MacFarlane said: ‘We’re looking forward to welcoming runners and supporters to this year’s race.

‘Taynish is a special place to run in, with stunning scenery, wildlife and great routes.

‘Our local Macmillan Cancer Support group also organises a coffee morning in the village hall, which means everyone in the community can come along and support the runners and this great cause.’

Race entry is via Entry­Central and all the information needed regarding the race can be found on the Taynish Run Facebook page.

The race is organised by Colin MacFarlane, supported by Mid Argyll Athletics Club and run under Scottish Athletics rules.
