After an enforced break last year, Inverness’s prestigious Campus 5K returns to the Highland capital on Friday night (23 July).
The programme at the Inverness campus of the University of the Highlands and Islands comprises two races – an open event followed by an elite contest, with a 17:30 cut off.
This year’s Campus 5K is being run as a fundraiser for the Kyniska Advocacy charity which supports women in sport and was founded by local athlete, Scotland internationalist Mhairi MacLennan who holds the women’s record at 16:39.
The men’s record of 14:42 is held by Kenny Wilson of Moray Road Runners.
