- 19th October 2024
The Dramathon is actually four races : The Full Dram (nearly 42km), The Half Dram (nearly 21km), The Wee Dram (just over 10km) and the relay (We Dram).
All are trail races, mostly on well-maintained paths along the beautiful Speyside Way. The route takes in several distilleries along the route, offering sights and smells to ignite your senses. Depending on the distance you run you will pick up the corresponding miniatures of single malt at the end of the race.
The finish line for all the races is at Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown. The full marathon starts at Glenfarclas, the half-marathon starts at Tamdhu, the 10K in Aberlour and the various legs of the relay divide up the marathon route into roughly 4 x 10km.
The course is overall pretty flat, as it mostly follows the old railway line of the Speyside Way, but there are a few hills (one ascent in each of the four sections of the full marathon course). The final stretch from Craigellachie to Dufftown is a gradual uphill slope. Some short sections on minor roads (about 5k of the full marathon course in total).
The Spey Valley will be in full spectacular Autumnal bloom on race weekend – come and experience one of the most beautiful and interesting corners of Scotland.
The Dramathon is beautifully structured and well-paced with a great finish. Just like a Speyside malt in fact …
