Loch Morlich Running Festival

08 May 2021

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the latest event delivered by Fitnessat58degrees!

Our Loch Morlich Running Festival has been a very popular event for a number of years now, sadly due to COVID19 our August edition of the Festival was postponed. We are absolutely delighted to announce that after a lot of hard work, our 5K and 10K events are making a return on Saturday 2nd January 2021. We will be the first company to operate a live event during these testing times and there will be some big changes, we appreciate your cooperation and patience throughout the day! We would like to thank all our patners who have helped us get to the point, we know how much live events have been missed and have put everything in place to ensure the health and safety of runners and staff is our number one priority. 

This event is the perfect way to kickstart your New Year and boost your motivation. Starting at the Hayfield, Glenmore, you will push yourself through forest trails with the Cairngorm Mountains as your backdrop, despite COVID19 protocols, the event will be as welcoming as always and we are looking forward to seeing you there!

What's included?

-Socially distanced warm up with Fitnessat58degrees instructor Sam Cairns.

-Timing and results sent out on the day.

-Pre-packaged environmentally friendly bag with Water, Home Baking and your well deserved medal!

-Prizes for Winners, kindly donated by our partners at Tiso.

The fun run can be completed by total beginners or elite runners. It does not matter if you walk, jog or run! The course allows you to take in some of the best views of the Cairngorms before finishing on the Loch Morlich beach itself. The 10K course consists of two loops of our usual 5.6KM fun run course (11.2KM total to be exact), it really is a stunning course with a great finish line and Sam and the team will be there to cheer you over the line.
