Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running


Whether you’re a seasoned marathon runner or a first timer, the Loch Ness Marathon is arguably one of the most stunning routes in the world.  Following the picturesque shores of Loch Ness with the backdrop of the beautiful Highland scenery there could be no better running experience.  Ranked in the top 10 UK marathons by Runner’s Word readers in 2016, the Loch Ness Marathon has grown in popularity year after year.  Taking part is easy, whatever your ability and age with a range of family friendly running events including a 5K and a wee Nessie.  

There’s plenty of activity to keep the whole family entertained on festival day including a free Sports Expo, Baxters Food and Drink Fayre, a pasta party, kids’ activities and live music.
