Great Stirling Run routes

The Great Stirling Run features a city centre start and finish.
Starting in the city centre near to the imposing Stirling Castle, runners will make their way along the A84, passing Blair Drummond Safari Park on their way towards Doune.
Crossing the historic Bridge of Teith, the route continues through Doune and on to Dunblane.
The route then follows the old A9, entering Bridge of Allan, then on to the University of Stirling where runners will this year traverse through the grounds before exiting onto Hillfoots Rd.
New for 2019, runners will head immediately south on the A91, returning to Stirling via the Springkerse area, finishing on King’s Park Road, alongside King’s Park.

Please note: the course may be subject to change.

Half Marathon:
If taking on the full marathon distance seems too daunting, why not take on the marathon's little brother event instead?
The route starts in the city of Stirling, travelling over the same start line as the full marathon; and takes runners on a 13.1 mile tour through the city and out towards Bridge of Allan, merging with the full marathon runners whilst entering the University of Stirling. With stunning views, rolling countryside and a fantastic finish line on King's Park Road the half marathon distance is the perfect option to build up your long distance running.

Please note: the course may be subject to change.
