Barrathon on Film


Those of you interested in seeing what the northerly Barra Half Marathon (or Barrathon) is like should check out BBC2's An Island Parish tonight at 19.30.

The series follows a year in the life of the three Roman Catholic priests who look after the two most remote and southerly parishes of the Outer Hebrides.

In tonight's episode on the island of Barra one of the priests, Father Roddy, struggles to maintain the honour of the Catholic church when he takes part in the race.

Registration is now closed for the 2011 race, but if you would like to know more about the event then visit the website.
