The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon and Festival of Running is recognised as one of the UK's leading marathons. The event showcases Scotland as the perfect stage for major athletic events following a spectacular point-to-point route through stunning Highland scenery, along the south-eastern shores of Loch Ness, and then crosses the River Ness to finish along the river at Bught Park.
This year the event welcomes the Baxters Pasta Party for runners, friends and family to load up on carbohydrates before the big race. There will be live music while you enjoy a three-course meal of soup and roll, pasta & salad and dessert. A small number of physiotherapists and massage therapists will provide massage in return for a small donation to charity. Bught Park will also play host to the Festival of Running with massed pipes & drums, live music, charity and sports retailer stands, food and drink stalls, kid's activities, and teh Highland Food and Drink Fayre.
