The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon is one of the most beautiful
marathons in the world, following a spectacular route alongside Loch Ness in the Highlands of
Scotland.

Loch Ness is one of the world’s most iconic destinations, its breath-taking scenery and the centuries-
old myth and mystery of the Loch Ness monster have attracted visitors from around the world for
years.


The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular point to point route alongside world famous
Loch Ness and is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful marathons in the world. The route begins in
an atmospheric moorland setting and continues through stunning scenery along the shores of Loch
Ness, across the River Ness to finish in the Highland capital of Inverness.

 
Why not make a weekend of it and come with family or friends? There’s plenty to entertain runners
and spectators over the weekend with a sports expo, runners' cafe, street food, live music, pipes &
drums and family friendly activities.


And if marathons aren’t your thing, there’s also the Baxters River Ness 10K, 5K and Wee Nessie kids'
race. Entry for all races available now.


Many runners and spectators choose to stay longer – a huge attraction of the Baxters Loch Ness
Marathon and Festival of Running is the area’s natural beauty and wealth of attractions. The area is
steeped in history, home to castles, misty mountains and, of course, the Loch Ness Monster.

boat trips to distillery visits.

everyone.

Course Highlights

The Marathon will start on the high ground between Fort Augustus and Foyers (B862) and will drop down to the banks of Loch Ness at Foyers (B852). From there, the route follows the loch’s south eastern shore, heading north east towards Dores on the northern tip of the loch. From Dores, the race heads directly into the centre of Inverness (B862), turning left over the main road bridge and left again for the last half mile along the River Ness to the finish at Bught Park in the centre of Inverness.
