Despite fears this year's race would be cancelled due to a lack of numbers, organisers of the Dundee Running Adventure Marathon (DRAM) have announced that the event on Sunday 21 July will be going ahead. As in previous years the race will be held alongside the Half DRAM with both races starting and finishing in Camperdown Park.
The picturesque marathon is a one-lap anti-clockwise route that follows the Green Circular cycle path which surrounds Dundee. The course has a mixture of terrain including woodland trails and tarmac with the final section taking runners along the River Tay waterfront. A section of the route is featured in the current edition of SCOTTISH RUNNING GUIDE.There are parking and toilet facilities at the park and there will be eight water stations. In keeping with the event's name, the fastest man and woman will receive a bottle of whisky each as a prize.
Race organiser Nicholas Kydd described the news as 'possibly the worst kept secret' and said: "We are taking a bit of a gamble as we haven't reached the magic 300 number, but we can confirm that the DRAM is going ahead this year."
