2020 Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running

Starts Saturday October 3rd, 2020

Inverness, Highland

Official Website

Description

Come and join over 8000 runners in the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running on 4 October 2020.

Beautiful scenery, fantastic atmosphere’, ‘friendliest race you'll ever participate in’, ‘friendly, well organised beautiful scenery', ‘best marathon in the UK by a country mile’, ‘a truly inspirational event’… are just some of the comments we had from runners in 2017 so why not come and experience it for yourself?

The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular point to point route alongside the iconic Scottish loch and is quite possibly one of the most stunning marathon routes anywhere in the world. It is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere to runners of all abilities and unforgettable camaraderie.

If a full-scale marathon isn’t for you, why not enter the BaxtersRiver Ness 10K? This flat point-to-point course, with excellent ‘pb’ potential, winds through the historic Highland capital alongside the banks of the scenic River Ness. If you prefer a team approach to sport, then the 10K Corporate Challenge for teams of 4-6 employees is the ideal race for you.

The Baxters River Ness 5K Fun Run, open to all ages and abilities, follows a scenic route alongside the picturesque River Ness to finish alongside other races at Bught Park.

Why not make a Highland weekend of it and come with family or friends?  The Festival of Running has plenty to entertain runners and spectators over the weekend with a free Sports Expo, the Baxters Food & Drink Fayre, live music, kids’ activities and a Wee Nessie for under-5s.
