Race Listing

Womens 10kThere’s a Highland flavour to a few events this weekend. Billed as Scotland’s ‘beastliest’ obstacle race, The Prime Four Beast Race - Loch Ness will see competitors tackle an epic 10K obstacle over rough terrain, dirt tracks, and forest. The Highland Perthshire Marathon and Half Marathon provides a more elegant outing for participants, going through the scenic countryside from Aberfeldy to Kenmore passing Loch Tay. For Lowlanders, the Scottish Barefoot Run and Conference returns to Edinburgh for its fourth year. 

You can find lots of events and results on our race listings page and organisers can add their race details to our event listings by signing up here.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
