Loch Ness Marathon Festival of Running

The Loch Ness Marathon is one of the most beautiful marathons in the world.  With stunning scenery and a fantastic atmosphere it’s one not to miss! As well as the marathon there are other distances making it suitable for all ages and abilities.

For the 2018 Loch Ness Marathon Festival we are joining forces with Legion Scotland to form a team of 100 runners to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War. It doesn’t matter what distance you choose, what matters is that as a team we will be raising as much as we can to support our Armed Forces community, whilst honouring those who have served, in this centenary year.

To join our Team, please click the Register Now button to visit the Loch Ness Marathon website. From there, select your distance and when prompted to choose a charity please type Poppyscotland into the box. Once you receive your confirmation email please send it to us at teamcenturionpoppy@legionscotland.org.uk We will then be in touch with further details about the team and your fundraising pack to get you started!  If you need any help to register please contact us on the above email address.
