When is this event?
We are renowned for delivering unforgettable fitness experiences in unforgettable locations. Over the last few years, we have developed a great reputation for our accessible, personal and friendly events in stunning locations. Our Loch Morlich Running Festival has been an event growing in popularity for the last four years now, and we are delighted to say, IT’S BACK!
The Loch Morlich Running Festival takes place on Sunday 2nd January 2021, making it a unique event! This is the perfect opportunity to kickstart your 2022 with friends and family whilst pushing yourself to one of the most stunning finish lines in the UK, Loch Morlich beach. The event is very welcoming, and we will support you if you decide to walk the course or chase a personal best.
Both courses are all on forest tracks (running trainers and trail shoes are suitable). The exact distances are 5.6KM and 11.2KM. The system includes stunning views as you make your way through the Glenmore Forest to Loch Morlich beach. The course will be well marshalled, with first-aiders on-site throughout the event.
Registration and the Start area at the Hayfield, Glenmore.
To get here, follow directions for Cairngorm Mountain. Before you go through the orange snow gates at the bottom of the ski road, you will see the Hayfield on the right-hand side. Please use Forestry Scotland car parks situated around the start area. Toilets will be available on site. From the finish, you will have a five-minute walk back to the start, hopefully with a big smile on your face!
