Organisers of the Scottish Stirling Marathon have added a half marathon contest to their Sunday 29 April race day programme. Following the successful introduction of the new marathon earlier this year, the Great Run team behind the event have been working hard on an improved marathon for 2018 including a revised route.
The addition of a 13.1 mile race will enhance Scottish Stirling Marathon’s status as one of the Scotland’s top events, while a new date four weeks ahead of Edinburgh Marathon Festival, compared to 2017’s one week difference in scheduling, should help establish Stirling as one the major Scottish running dates alongside Edinburgh Marathon Festival, Loch Ness Marathon and the Great Scottish Run.
The route starts in the city of Stirling on Millennium Way, a stone's throw from Stirling Castle, and takes runners on a 13.1 mile tour through the city and out towards the Ochil Hills. With stunning views, rolling countryside and a fantastic finish line on King's Park Road this half marathon trip is a great option to build up your long distance running.
Further information and sign-up to the Scottish Stirling Marathon is available on the Great Run website.
