THE HIGH ROAD

Athletics Weekly - - Baxters Loch Ness Marathon -

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
