The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon, which takes place on September 23, 2018, is one of the most stunning marathons in the world. With spectacular scenery, fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience – it’s no wonder runners travel from around the globe to take part.

“Breathtakingly beautiful”, “friendly atmosphere”, “flawless organisation”, “felt like a festival not just a race” are just some of the comments from the 8000 runners who took part in 2017 so why not sign up and experience it for yourself?

The Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular 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 shores of Loch Ness, across the River Ness, to finish in Inverness, capital city of the Highlands.

If a full marathon isn’t for you, why not enter the Baxters River Ness 10K or 5K? Following a flat, scenic, point-to-point course through the historic Highland capital of Inverness, both races offer excellent PB potential.

Make a Highland weekend of it and visit with family or friends; there’s plenty to entertain runners and spectators over the race weekend with a Sports Expo, Baxters Food & Drink Fayre, live music and kids’ activities throughout the weekend.

There are many marathons that promise spectacular scenery, fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience – but few deliver it quite like the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running. Guaranteed marathon places and early bird entries are available NOW.
