Fort William Marathon
Fort William Marathon – July 26, 2015
The Fort William Marathon offers up some truly unique sights: Run in the shadow of Ben Nevis and follow the Great Glen Way along Thomas Telford’s Caledonian Canal with Neptune’s Staircase, say the organisers.
This mixed terrain 26.2miler starts at the Nevis Range resort, heading north-east through Leanachan Forest with some undulation before dropping to a 6miles stretch of canal path. Runners will then head towards the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis (and more temptingly perhaps the Ben Nevis Distillery) before returning to Leanachan Forest and the finish back at the Nevis Range resort.
Entry to the Fort William Marathon is £45, further details and online entry at fortwilliammarathon.co.uk
