The Mull of Kintyre Half Marathon and 10k takes prominence in the Campbeltown Running Club's calendar. The race takes place at the end of May each year at the bank holiday weekend. It was mokrun, beginning in 2006, that has motivated Kintyre people to get up and running.
The 10k race is around three sides of Campbeltown Loch, and is mainly very flat. The half-marathon route leaves the town and runs through the countryside and across the new Machrihanish Dunes Golf Course, and includes around a kilometre on the hard sandy beach of Westport. The final mile of both races is on a slight down gradient into the town and through the main street.
