The Highland Perthshire Marathon 2018 this year it is Run or Bike so if you have an excess of energy you might want to “bike” the course after your run. The start timings have been arranged to make this possible.

If you are on twitter please follow us @HPMarathon and also let other people or members of your Club know about our Marathon & Half Marathon, and if they wish they can run for any Charity. Running for a charity is a great way to boost your motivation and really does make a difference.  To find out more about these very worthwhile causes we are helping to support and how you can help make a difference please visit our website Highland Perthshire Marathon which has links to their sites and then contact them for sponsorship forms.

We also have a community page on facebook and our own website for your information is Highland Perthshire Marathon

Good luck and see you in September.

Scottish Hill Running Championship Series

With the XC season coming to a close, it’s a time when clubs and runners begin to plan the next races for 2018.   On behalf of the Hill Running Commission for Scottish Athletics, we’d like to advertise some of the range of Hill Running events happening over Scotland through the year, for Junior and Senior runners.  Hill running provides an ideal alternative or supplement to road events, as demonstrated by some of Scotland’s most successful road runners at London Marathon last year coming from a hill-running background!
