Loch Leven Half Marathon Runner

Leven Heaven

Head to Loch Leven for a scenic springtime half...

A scenic springtime half marathon is a tantalising prospect and something that will help you to dig deep and find the motivation to train in these cold winter months.

Loch Leven Half Marathon is run annually in May (13th this year) around the scenic shores of Loch Leven in Kinross-shire and is the perfect candidate. The race is organised by Kinross Road Runners whose aim is to ensure that it continues to be one of the best half marathons in Scotland and they are doing a good job of just that.

The race starts at the bottom of Kinross and finishes in the grounds of Kinross High School at the top of the town. The route is gently undulating with some of Scotland's finest scenery as a backdrop and, new for 2023, the route will be run on closed roads.

Speaking about the May event, a spokesperson said: "We made some big improvements for 2023. You will be running on closed roads, medals are now included with every entry and we’ve added an extra 200 places to this sellout event!"

The additional 200 places means that the race now has a limit of 850 runners but as it is historically a sell-out, grab your spot quickly. At time of writing, 50% of places had been taken... so you've been warned.

The spokesperson continued: "Entries for 2023 will cost £32 for unaffiliated runners which now include a medal for all participants, the prices have been increased to reflect the significant costs of implementing road closures to make the event safer and more enjoyable for all."
