Luxury Prize At Highland Perthshire Marathon

Highland Perthshire Marathon

Organisers of the Highland Perthshire Marathon have provided another incentive to take part in this year's race by offering runners the opportunity of week's holiday near Alicante in Southern Spain.

The prize, which covers a week long stay for up to 12 people, ideal for a family holiday - or treating 11 of your favourite club mates - is available to all runners who complete the marathon or half marathon on September 1. The holiday comes courtesy of Splash, one of the UK's largest outdoor adventure activity providers, who are based in Aberfeldy.

The inaugural events, organised by the Rotary Club of Aberfeldy & District, looks set to attract 500 competitors. Beginning on the fairway of Aberfeldy Golf Club, the course is predominantly flat with a gentle hill at the 8 mile mark. The route is said to be extremely picturesque, taking in some of the beautiful scenery of Highland Perthshire.

The early bird discount for both events run until June 30, with the marathon priced at £36.00 and half-marathon £27.00. Included in the price is free camping and car park, pasta party, post-race refreshments, shower & swim, leg massage, and the festivities rounded off with a traditional ceilidh.
