The Dramathon - The Speyside Single Malt Marathon
Saturday 20th October 2018
The Dramathon is actually four races : full marathon, half, 10km and a relay.
All are trail races, mostly on well-maintained grassy paths along the beautiful Speyside Way. The route takes in several distilleries along the route, offering sights and smells to ignite your senses. Depending on the distance you run you will pick up the corresponding miniatures of single malt at the end of the race.
The finish line for all the races is at Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown. The full marathon starts at Glenfarclas, the half-marathon starts at Tamdhu, the 10K in Aberlour and the various legs of the relay divide up the marathon route into roughly 4 x 10km.
The course is mostly pretty flat, and largely follows the old railway line of the Speyside Way, but there are a couple of hills in the first half of the full marathon (and the first 2 legs of the relay). The final stretch from Craigellachie to Dufftown is a gradual uphill slope. Some occasional short sections on minor roads.
The Spey Valley will be in full spectacular Autumnal bloom on race weekend – come and experience one of the most beautiful and interesting corners of Scotland.
The Dramathon is beautifully structured and well-paced with a great finish. Just like a Speyside malt in fact.
