Organiser's Description

Welcome to the Fitnessat58degrees Loch Morlich Running Festival!

We are renowned for delivering unforgettable fitness experiences in unforgettable locations and over the last few years, have developed a great reputation for our accessible, personal and friendly events in stunning locations. Our Loch Morlich Running Festival has been an event growing in popularity for the last 4 years now and we are delighted to say, IT'S BACK!

The Loch Morlich Running Festival takes place on Saturday 7th January 2023, making it a unique event! This is the perfect opportunity to kickstart your 2023 with friends and family, whilst pushing yourself to one of the most stunning finish lines in the UK, Loch Morlich beach. The event is very welcoming, we will support you if you decide to walk the course or you are chasing a personal best. 

Both courses are all on forest tracks (running trainers and trail shoes are both suitable), the exact distances are 5.6KM and 11.2KM, the course includes stunning views throughout as you make your way through the Glenmore Forest to Loch Morlich beach. The course will be well marshalled, with first-aiders on site throughout the event. 

Registration and the Start are at the Hayfield, Glenmore. To get to the start, simply follow directions for Cairngorm Mountain, just before you go through the orange snow gates at the bottom of the ski road, you will see the Hayfield on the right hand side. Please use Forestry Scotland car parks, which are situated around the start area. Toilets will be available on site. From the finish, you will have a five minute walk back to the start, hopefully with a big smile on your face!
