Baxters Loch Ness Marathon

AW promotion: Sign up to take on one of the most stunning marathons in the world

The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon is one of the most stunning marathons in the world and it is set to return on October 3, 2021.

With spectacular scenery, fantastic atmosphere and providing a truly memorable experience – it’s no wonder runners come from around the world 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 9400 runners in 2019 so why not come and experience it for yourself?

The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular point-to-point route alongside the world famous Loch Ness, starting in an atmospheric moorland setting and continuing through stunning Highland scenery, taking you along the shores of Loch Ness and across the River Ness before finishing 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 Inverness, both races offer excellent pb potential.

Make a Highland weekend of it and come 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.

Be part of it and sign up today: lochnessmarathon.com
