Take part in an unforgettable marathon experience, running beside the iconic Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. The point to point route starts in an spectacular moorland setting and takes you through stunning scenery alongside the loch and the River Ness, to finish in the Highland capital of Inverness.
Whether you’re a runner or a spectator, there’s plenty to keep you entertained over the weekend with an expo, runners’ cafe, street food, live music, pipes and drums and family friendly activities.
There’s also the Baxters River Ness 10K and 5K, both races follow flat routes alongside the river in Inverness and are perfect for PB chasers and first timers alike. A 10K Corporate Challenge for teams of 4-6 employees and a Wee Nessie kids’ race for under 5s completes the Festival of Running.
Why not make a Highland weekend of it and come with family or friends? The area is steeped in history, home to castles, whisky distilleries, misty mountains and, of course, a chance to spot Nessie herself! Activities in the local area range from kayaking, dolphin spotting trips to distillery visits.
With a choice of race distances and the festival atmosphere, the Festival of Running offers an amazing experience. But don’t just take our word for it…. “The Loch Ness Marathon was my first every marathon and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Don’t just think about it… do it!” 2023 Runner
