The centuries-old legend of the Loch Ness Monster is a story that continues to run. Along with the scenic beauty of the area, it has been responsible for attracting visitors to this fascinating part of Scotland for many years.
The opportunity to put such a memorable marathon on their record, one with such a unique story to tell, has proven too strong a pull for thousands of runners of all abilities. With a hot meal and entertainment awaiting you at the finish, plus fantastic technical t-shirt included in your entry fee, the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon also offers genuine value for money.
Runners at the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon are taking on the challenge for many reasons: to raise money for good causes, to have fun and enjoy the fantastic setting, to experience the camaraderie, and to achieve their own personal goals.
