The Strathearn Marathon takes place in beautiful Perthshire, and has developed the reputation of being one of Scotland's friendliest marathons, as evidenced by the feedback we got from last year's race.  The race is organised by Strathearn Harriers, who are also responsible for the popular and very successful Crieff 10k and Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay.  The marathon route follows predominantly quiet B roads in Strathearn, starting and finishing at the Cultybraggan Camp just outside Comrie, with about 1500 feet of ascent.

In 2017 we are introducing a relay entry for teams of 3 runners, running legs of approximately 8 miles, 10 miles and 8 miles. There will be prizes for first Male, Female and Mixed relay teams, subject to there being at least 3 teams in the category. A Mixed team must include at least one female runner, but mixed teams may also choose to enter the Male category if they wish.

A map of the route can be downloaded from the race website at http://www.strathearnharriers.org.uk/racing/club-races/strathearn-marathon/route-map  

Before entering, please note the race entry terms and conditions shown on the event website. 

The race takes place on public roads which are not closed to traffic. Please note that for safety reasons we recommend that runners do not wear earphones during the race. If you do choose to wear them we ask you to keep the sound level low enough to hear marshal's instructions and to remove them when approaching road junctions. 

Please also note that the reduction to entry fees of £2 per head is only available to people who are members of Scottish Athletics. This is because Scottish Athletics require us to pay a £2 levy for all other runners regardless of membership of any other athletics federation.
