Loch Ness Marathon
& festival of running

A Monster Race... running alongside the shores of the world's most famous loch.

Rèis Uile-bheist... a’ ruith an cois cladaichean an locha as ainmeil air an t-saoghal

Loch Ness is one of the best-known destinations in the world. Its beautiful scenery and the centuries-old mystery of the Loch Ness monster have attracted visitors from around the world for years.

The monster is not the only long-running legend in the area, as Loch Ness is also home to one of the best marathons in the UK. It is the biggest in Scotland which takes place in a rural setting, and brings lots of opportunities for all kinds of runners to take part – either in the marathon or one of the associated running events.

Whatever your reasons for running, we invite you to join us on the start line and become part of the Loch Ness running legend. Explore the events we offer: all of them providing fantastic sights, challenges to suit various abilities, lots of fun, and the chance to achieve something memorable in one of the most famous parts of the world.
