Last ‘Cull’ for entries to Scotland’s most historic race

The Culloden Run returns to the legendary landscape of Culloden Moor this Sunday, 27 October and there is still time to be part of this year’s history. Online entries close at midnight, Thursday 24 October.

The popular event is organised by the team at Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) working in partnership with the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) and is based at the iconic Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre near Inverness.

The Culloden Run prides itself on being suitable for all standards of runners and joggers with two race distances to choose from: the unique race distance of 17.46k (10.8 miles) in recognition of the year of the Battle of Culloden – 1746 – plus the Culloden 10K race for those looking for a shorter battle to take on.

Both distance options attract a great cross-section of runners from all over the UK and abroad who come to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the event. The Culloden Run 17.46K is the more challenging of the two routes, and includes a couple of interesting wee hills to conquer; the Culloden 10K provides a flatter and faster race.

The whole event is set within a stunning historic landscape, and both races enjoy enchanting scenery on quiet roads. Passing by the historic landmarks of the Culloden Battlefield, the Neolithic Clava Cairns and the awesome River Nairn Viaduct, it’s not just the running takes runners’ breath away.

All participants in the Culloden Run receive a special event memento and goody bag, plus there are various category prizes and awards.
