Inverness Half Marathon

Half Marathon & 5K the 'heart and soul' of Inverness

Entries to popular springtime challenge selling fast

With just over eight weeks to go until the return of the Inverness Half Marathon & 5K, entries are selling fast.

Runners are set to return to the start line of the popular Highlands challenge on Sunday, 13 March. 

The early season half-marathon with great PB potential follows a flat and scenic route through the historic Highland capital of Inverness alongside the picturesque River Ness. 

The 5K route also sticks to the banks of the River Ness, and is a perfect event for both ‘resolution’ and experienced runners of all ages alike. 

The perfect motivation to keep training through the long, dark months of winter, the Inverness Half Marathon has long been a favourite of runners from across Scotland. One told us, "The Inverness Half has to be one of my all-time favourites. The atmosphere is amazing, the organisation is second to none and I love the route. Top marks from me."   

The last Inverness Half Marathon was held on Sunday, 8 March 2020 – one of the last big events to be held before lockdown. Nearly 2100 runners – from elites to seasoned club runners and first timers – took on the 13.1 mile course. 

Race organisers Caledonian Concepts told runABC Scotland, “Whether you’re working your way up to this distance for the first time, are a seasoned half marathon runner or looking to run a 5K with friends or family, this could be the perfect spring race to keep you motivated and training through the winter.”

“But whatever race you choose, a warm Highland welcome will await you as you approach the finish line.”

Entries to both events close on 28 February, or when race capacity is reached. 

Limited entries to the 5K may be available on the day, space permitting, but no on-the-day entries to the Half will be permitted.
