Loch Ness Marathon
Known for spectacular Scottish scenery, fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience – it’s no wonder it was voted in the top 10 UK marathons by Runner’s World readers in 2016 and is on the bucket list for many runners from around the world. “Breathtakingly beautiful”, “friendly atmosphere”, “flawless organisation”, “felt like a festival not just a race” are just some of the comments from runners in 2016 so why not experience it for yourself? The Loch Ness Marathon follows a point-to-point route alongside world famous Loch Ness, starting in an atmospheric moorland setting and continues through stunning Highland scenery, taking you along the south-eastern shores of Loch Ness, across the River Ness, to finish in Inverness, capital city of the Highlands.
Why not make a Highland weekend of it and come with family or friends? There’s plenty to entertain runners and spectators ove the weekend with a Sports Expo, Baxters Food & Drink Fayre, pipe bands, live music and kids’ activities.The marathon starts at 10h00 and there is a 8hrs 15mins time limit. There is also a flat 5km and 10km race which takes place on the same day.
