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.

Take part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and explore the beautiful views of Edinburgh. It will be held on 25/26th May and offers a marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k.

The Edinburgh Marathon was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World. Enjoy a fantastic all-encompassing route taking in some of Edinburghs most iconic landmarks as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline.

Directly preceding the Marathon, the EMF Half follows the same fast and flat route, offering genuine PB potential. This increasingly popular race distance is a fantastic alternative for those that dont fancy the big 26.2.

The 10K & 5k fall on the Saturday of the Festival weekend and are run in the stunning surroundings of Holyrood Park. Starting and finishing near Dynamic Earth, these routes offer striking panoramic views of the city and Edinburgh Castle.
