Regarded as one of the most scenic races in the UK, the 30th Isle of Skye Half Marathon & Fun Run on Saturday gives participants great views of Ben Tianavaig, the Old Man of Storr and Isle of Rassay. A race with less history but equally stunning views is Sunday's Strathearn Marathon in Comrie, Perthshire. Organised by Strathearn Harriers, the route follows B roads in Strathearn and with about 1500 feet of ascent, presents a tough challenge even for experienced runners. Sunday also sees the Polaroid Eyewear series come to an end with the fourth and final race - Vale of Leven 10K - at the Loch Lomond shores in Balloch.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend, and remember you can check our race listings for your results!
