Loch Rannoch Marathon

27/10/2016

Dumfries Running Club members Alison McKean and Simon Mortlock headed north for the second resumed running of the Loch Rannoch Marathon on Sunday 16th October.

This must be one of Scotland's most scenic marathons, running around this very wild and conveniently marathon sized loch in the heart of Scotland on a minor loch shore road that passes through old natural woodlands in full autumn colours.

It was a cold  and blustery morning when approx. 190 runners set off around the loch, the wind strengthened during the race and for the return on the undulating south side of the loch it was whipping up spray from the waves towards the runners.

Simon finished in  around 3 hours 25 and Alison in around 3 hours 45. Both finished dry just before the full storm struck and the torrential rain started.

It was a great marathon route and deserves to grow in popularity.
