Loch Morlich Runner

Get Set For 2023

New year. New goals. New challenges. Why not kickstart the year as you mean to go on?

Back for its fifth year running, the Loch Morlich Running Festival is set for 7 January 2023 in the heart of the breathtaking Cairngorm National Park. This is the perfect opportunity to kickstart your new year with friends and family, whilst pushing yourself to one of the most stunning finish lines in the UK, Loch Morlich Beach.

An event designed for everyone, participants will make their way through the canopy of Glenmore Forest towards the shores of Loch Morlich beach on either a '5K' or '10K' course. Both distances are on forest tracks and the exact distances are actually 5.6K and 11.2K (but whats the odd K between friends?!). As you would imagine, the route includes stunning views throughout and is well-marshalled with plenty of support. 

Starting at Hayfield, Glenmore, the day begins with a warm-up session led by Fitnessat58° instructor and Team GB athlete, Sam Cairns. Following the forest tracks, runners will then be guided by marshals towards Loch Morlich Beach where they will be greeted by delicious home bakes and a handmade wooden medal to keep as a reminder of their success. 

Fitnessat58° is renowned for delivering unforgettable fitness experiences in unforgettable locations and over the last few years, has developed a great reputation for their accessible, personal and friendly events in stunning locations. Testament to this, they recently commented on social media: "Due to the fantastic response to the event, entries are already becoming limited, secure your space as soon as possible!"
