The 2016 Islay Half marathon took place on Saturday 6th August with a number of CRC members making the small ferry trip across.  The conditions were similar to last year with a strong head wind for the first half of the race.  Thankfully the final 6 miles were in the runners favour so nice to get a push in to the finish line.

There were some podium finishes with Stuart McGeachy finishing second overall in 1:18:35, which was over 3 mins behind winner Kenny Campbell who finished in 1:14:32. Jennifer Reid finished as second female in 1:32:08.  The CRC ladies also finished as first team, which included Jennifer Reid, Kerry O'May and Jocelyn Richard.

Below are all the CRC race timings:

2nd - Stuart McGeachy - 1.18.11
2nd Female (16th overall) - Jennifer Reid - 1.32.08
38th - James McEachran - 1.42.36
47th - Kerry O'May - 1.46.34
50th - Jocelyn Richard - 1.46.54
