What you need to know

Starting from the beautiful village of Langsett, this new and exciting race will twist and wind you through some of the most scenic forest trails in the Peak District National park.

From there you will hit a single track that changes in elevation several times, from the top of this climb you will be greeted to a spectacular technical decent which will land you right into the heart of the Derwent valley.

With gentle rolling tracks along the Derwent water, you will eventually be hit head-on with some tough gritty climbs onto the outer edges of the Derwent valley.

This will lead you to the final climb onto the last ridge before you descend back to the finish for a well-earned cuppa!!!!

Navigation skills essential, lower parts of the course will be marked. A GPX file will be available to download and map of the route will be available on the website to print also the map will be handed out at registration.

Welcome to the Glencoe Marathon Gathering, featuring the full 26.2 mile Glencoe Marathon, the Mamores Half Marathon and the Glen Nevis 10K.

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 route snakes through the pass of Glencoe, surrounded by the towering remains of this ancient super volcano, before climbing 500 metres up the fearsome Devils Staircase. From the eastern edge of the Aonach Eagach Ridge you look straight onto the mighty Buachaille Etive Mor (the great herdsman) before dropping back to sea level at Kinlochleven where the Mamores Half Marathon starts. Climbing up through the Mamores the route undulates until the descent into Glen Nevis and the base of the mighty Ben Nevis, the UKs highest peak.

The Glencoe Marathon Gathering is organised by WildFox Events, Scotland's original adventure challenge company. Over the past fifteen years Wildfox Events has have offered participants an unrivalled experience and a range of events in some of the most stunning parts of the UK.
