Organiser's Description

Welcome to the latest event delivered by Fitnessat58degrees, the Loch Morlich Running Festival!

For the past few years we have organised both a Winter and Summer Loch Morlich 5K Fun Run. This is a family friendly event and gives runners the chance to push themselves whilst experiencing some of the best views the Cairngorms has to offer. This year, we have added a 10K Run to the programme for the first time ever and we are excited to see lots of different runners of lots of different ages enjoying this stunning course on Sunday 4th August 2019.

Full information for both events are provided BELOW, once you have decided, simply click on the event you would like to enter! Or, perhaps you want a proper challenge and want to take on both events in one day!
