2019 Loch Katrine Running Festival

sunday 24th march

In Aid of Alzheimer Scotland

Event Full - Entries closed

Three races:

marathon, half marathon, 10k.



This event was originally organised in 2013 to raise funds for Alzheimer Scotland. The event was successful has now become a regular fixture with places selling out quickly.

It will continue to be a no frills event open to runners of all abilities, with the emphasis on minimising costs and passing the majority of the entry fee money to the charity.

The Loch Katrine Running Festival is LGBT friendly. It is non-binary. You can enter as male, female or non-binary. If you are transgender we are happy for you to enter and run in the gender category you identify with.

The races are run along a quiet private road on the shores of Loch Katrine (starting and finishing at the Trossachs Pier) in the Trossachs. It is a challenging route, but runners will be rewarded with some excellent scenery and views.

All finishers will receive a medal and goody bag and there are prizes for the first 3 overall male and female finishers in each race and for the first non-binary finisher in each race.

The Triple Crown title is awarded to any runner who has completed each of the 3 races/distances in order of distance over 3 consecutive years.

There is a Facebook Group for the event also, where you can find additional information and communicate with other participants.

Race Day Information will be available nearer the time.

Some comments about the event .....

Nah, no ‘real’ hills, don’t worry. More just waves of uneven flatness
— Les Cairney, 3x marathon finisher
Most scenic marathon you will run, full stop. The only road marathon I run
— Stan Bland, trail and ultra runner
I have run the half twice and it is my favourite race ever! First year I done 1:43 and did not get the opportunity to savour the awesome views, last year I ran with my non - running husband and we savoured every inch.....coming in almost last but to the most fantastic cheers from the people at the finish line. .....
