The Baxters Loch Ness marathon and Festival of Running has won a trio of awards in the last two months. In October, it was awarded 'Best Sporting Event' at the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards, closely followed by Best Marathon at the Running Fitness Magazine awards, then in November it was crowned 'Best Sporting Event' at the Scottish Thistle Awards in Glasgow.
The running festival was held on 30 September this year and attracted thousands of runners from across the globe with Ross Houston of Central AC winning the marathon.
Baxters Loch Ness Marathon said: "We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who come along, spectate and are so supportive of the event; plus all our wonderful sponsors and volunteers, without whom it wouldn't happen at all!"
Entries are now open for next year's event which will take place on Sunday 29 September. For more information visit the Loch Ness marathon website.
