The Loch Ness Marathon raises enormous amounts of money for charity, but whatever your reasons for running, it is truly amazing to see so many entrants on the start line willing to have a go and become part of the Loch Ness running legend either in the marathon or one of the associated running events. All events provide 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.
Many runners and their families and friends choose to make a holiday of it and come to stay for a week or more. It allows competitors to check out the route and get a bit of loch-side running practice in. there is excellent local accommodation to choose from along the route.
