Race Description:

First run in 2002, the Loch Ness Marathon has quickly become one of Britain's favourite races, being voted by Runners World as one of the top three running events. There is also a Loch Ness 10K, 5K and Wee Nessie 400m. The route is very beautiful and takes in the beautiful Highland scenery, along the shores of Loch Ness before crossing the River Ness reaching the finish line in Bught Park in Inverness.

The Marathon starts between Fort Augustus and Foyers. It then follows the route (B852) down to the edge of the loch at Foyers. Runners will then follow Loch Ness's south-eastern shore, making their way north-eastwards towards Dores at the northern edge of the loch. After Dores, runners head into the centre of Inverness, traversing left over the main bridge in the centre of town. They then turn left again following the River Ness for the last half mile to the finish line at Bught Park in Inverness.
