The Second Rousay Peedie 5K Lap

Thank you to everyone who came along last year and made our first Peedie Race so special, this will now be an annual event and the 2019 Peedie 5K race will be held on Saturday 08 June starting at 12 noon.  This is a free adult and children’s fun race and participants can run or walk from the top of the Pier to the fire station and back on the beautiful island of Rousay.  Primary age children can cycle with their parents/guardians, so this is not an adult cycle race, but more of a ‘fun’ running or walking event.  

Registration is from 10 a.m. at the Rousay Heritage Centre.  The race is for all ages and abilities.


This years’ Lap is once again funded by the Rousay, Egilsay & Wyre Development Trust and is open to all ages, but under 16s must have their parent or guardian sign the entrance form and under 12s must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.   All finishers will be issued with a finishers certificate together with a Rousay Peedie Lap medal. 


This year the REW Development Trust will be collecting for the RNLI both at the registration and finish line; all donations are very welcome.  For an entry form, please contact the office on 01856 821229 (email info@rewdt.org) by Wednesday 05 June.  Or, just come along on the day and register before the race.


Please remember to book your ferry travel to Rousay: the Tingwall office phone number is 01856 751360.  

Hope to see you all on Race Day.
