Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running 2017

The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon on 24 September 2017 is quite possibly one of the most stunning marathons in the world. With spectacular scenery, fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience – it’s no wonder runners come from around the world to take part.


“Breathtakingly beautiful”, “friendly atmosphere”, “flawless organisation”, “felt like a festival not just a race” are just some of the comments we had from our 8000 runners in 2016 so why not come and experience it for yourself?


Probably the most stunning marathon in the world

The Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular point-to-point route alongside world-famous Loch Ness, starting in an atmospheric moorland setting and continues through stunning Highland scenery, taking you along the shores of Loch Ness, across the River Ness, to finish in Inverness, capital city of the Highlands.


Full marathon not for you?

If a full marathon isn’t for you, why not enter the Baxters River Ness 10K or 5K? Following a flat, scenic, point-to-point course through the historic Highland capital of Inverness, both races offer excellent ‘pb’ potential.


Make a Highland weekend of it!

Why not make a Highland weekend of it and come with family or friends?  There’s plenty to entertain runners and spectators over race weekend with a free Sports Expo, Baxters Food & Drink Fayre, live music and kids’ activities throughout the weekend.


There are many marathons that promise spectacular scenery, fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience – but few deliver it quite like the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running.
