Race Description:

The Glencoe Marathon links Glen Nevis with the great Glencoe. There are two big climbs, with a total ascent of 1369m as well as the Devil’s Staircase which is a testing 240 metre descent over the eastern edge of the Aonach Eagach Ridge.

The start is in Glen Nevis beneath Ben Nevis. The route rises gradually through the south west of the Mamores Mountains, following the West Highland Way until you descend into Kinlochleven.  There is another steep climb out of Kinlochleven as you head to the eastern end of the Aonoach Eagach ridge and then descend down the Devil's Staircase to reach Glencoe. The race course then turns west on the paths following the A82 to go through Glencoe in between two famous hill ranges – to your right the Aonach Eagach Ridge and to your left the Three Sisters and Ossians Cave. From there runners pass Loch Achtriochtan before heading on into the outskirts of Glencoe village for the finish at Red Squirrel camp site.

The race is featured in Runner's World magazine September 2021.

Event support includes refreshments and services at the checkpoints/water stops, medical and logistical support. There wiil be water, energy drinks, energy snacks, fruit and hot drinks and toilets available on the route.
