Loch Katrine Marathon 14th March 2019

After missing last years race due to snow it was great to find myself at the start of this years race. Big thanks to Alan who drove most of us through. Although the weather was wet and wild and windy the race was very enjoyable. It is an out and back route so we all had the pleasure of cheering Adam on as he steamed past us to win the race. It is hillier than I had anticipated, being around a loch. Michael Philp was the official photographer and captured some fantastic images of the marathon and the half and 10k which were also on as part of the Loch Katrine running festival. The races are in aid of Alzheimers Scotland. At the end of the race we all received a reusable cup which I thought was a great idea.

    Great report and pictures. It was a fantastic day covering all sorts of weather during the race.

    In season of course it is a bit easier to get to Stronachlachar on the Sir Walter Scott (which I’ve done a few times) rather than around the loch on the road. Well done everyone and hope you’ve all recovered!
