Loch Ness Marathon

Run The Beautiful One In 2024

It's time to tick Loch Ness off your marathon bucket list...

Rated as one of the most beautiful marathons in the world, Loch Ness is a highlight in the autumn calendar and so it should come as no surprise that the event is on the bucket list of many runners around the globe.

In 2024 the famed marathon will take place on 29 September. So, whether you'd like to run for fitness, fun or finish line glory, if you start training now you can enjoy a perfect autumn date with success.

Maybe you are more interested in a shorter race distance? The Festival of Running also features the popular Baxters River Ness 10K and 5K - both races follow scenic, flat routes through Inverness and are perfect for newbies and PB chasers alike - so whatever your running distance, there’s a race for you!

A trip to The Highlands is always a good idea, so why not make a weekend of it? There will be lots going on for both runners and supporters at the Event Village over race weekend with a family friendly festival, Expo, live music, street food and Wee Nessie kids’ race.

But don’t just take our word for it, a 2023 runner commented: "The Loch Ness Marathon was my first ever marathon and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Don't just think about it... do it!"
