Team Shetland

Highlighting Shetland's togetherness

What is Team Shetland?

Team Shetland looks to act as a hub for detailing and showcasing Shetland's togetherness as a community across sport, business and more. Team Shetland wants to be a show-off for a number of areas that Shetland excels at together, supporting one another in creating opportunity and success.

It's often taken for granted the sheer amount that goes on across different organisations in Shetland as opposed to anywhere else in the World in terms of businesses supporting local causes, sports groups and events and the level of volunteering goes side-by-side with that.

We also often take for granted the sporting facilities themselves, the educational opportunities and everything else that comes with that. Team Shetland looks to truly give credit where credit is due in terms of businesses, organisations and individuals supporting other businesses, organisations and individuals as everyone grows together in being an active community. You can find out more about some of these through our community case studies, and blog posts.

The Team Shetland website will be a digital vitrine for everything achieved together in business, academics, sports and continuing to show how it all fits together!

It’s been far too long, but I’m looking forward to getting back on a start line again. This Sunday, I’ll line up in the Dounby 10k in Orkney for what will be my 1st road race since last years Island Games. 60 athletes will make up the field and will be set off in 2 groups of 30. It will be very difficult to take the smile from my face when the starting gun sounds. I look forward to a great race. #BelieveInTheBobble #Shetland #shetlandislands #runnersofinstagram #athletics #runningmotivation #roadrunning #teamshetland
