Join Glencoe Marathon Gathering
Welcome to the Glencoe Marathon!
The off-road marathon is an epic trail run that ascends a total of 1,608 metres through the heart of Glencoe and into the foothills of Ben Nevis.
The Glencoe Marathon, the first marathon to be run through this amazing landscape, links the great Glencoe with Glen Nevis. Taking in the Devil’s Staircase, a gruelling 500 metre climb over the eastern edge of the truly fearsome Aonach Eagach Ridge, runners will be rewarded at every turn with views of some of the most stunning and dramatic mountains in the Scottish Highlands.
The Glencoe Marathon is gaining a fantastic reputation for being, without a doubt, the most scenic off road marathon in the UK. This part of the Highlands has stunning scenery, and a vast amount to see and explore, and what better way to explore it than by running a marathon?!
Start: Red Squirrel Car Park
Turn west on the paths following the A82 through the stunning Glencoe past Loch Achtriochtan and in between two legendary hill ranges – to your left the Aonach Eagach Ridge and to your right the Three Sisters and Ossians Cave. This section climbs 330m over 13km.
On reaching Altnafeadh the route turns north and the incline steepens to climb The Devil’s Staircase up to a height of 548m followed by a descent back to sea level at Kinlochleven.
The 326m climb out of Kinlochleven can come as a surprise! The route undulates around the south west of the Mamores Mountains until you descend east into Glen Nevis.
The finish is at the Event Hub in Glen Nevis, under the shadow of the mighty Ben Nevis.
