What you need to know

26.2 challenging miles across the glorious West Pennines, taking in the Iconic Darwen Tower!

The route will take you on a journey across the Darwen Moor towards the Rivington, stopping short, the route changes direction and takes you to the Peel Tower and over Holcombe Moor before running back to Darwen.

We absolutely believe this will be an event to remember, giving you panoramic views from the top of the moors, rugged terrain that will challenge you mentally and physically and to top it all off, you will be rewarded with some serious bling and tee for your hard efforts!

Plenty of water/fuel stations along the route and when it's all over, the Olde English Kiosk will be open for food and of course, there is a licenced bar there too!

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.
