The Dramathon - The Speyside Single Malt Marathon

Saturday 21st October 2017

The Dramathon is a marathon distance trail running race along the beautiful Speyside Way from Glenfarclas distillery to Glenfiddich distillery. The route takes in several distilleries along the route each offering a whisky experience to ignite your senses. By getting stamped at each participating distillery you can pick up the corresponding miniatures at the end of the race.

You have the choice of a full marathon distance (Glenfarclas to Glenfiddich), a half-marathon (Tamdhu to Glenfiddich), a 10K (Aberlour to Glenfiddich) or a relay race (team of 4 divides up the marathon route).

The course is reasonably flat, and largely follows the old railway line of the Speyside Way. The Spey Valley will be in full spectacular Autumnal bloom on race weekend – come and experience one of the most beautiful and interesting corners of Scotland.

The route uses mainly forest tracks with some occasional short sections on minor roads and some hilly terrain.

The Dramathon is beautifully structured and well-paced with a great finish. Just like a Speyside malt in fact.

Route sections :

The first section from Glenfarclas to Ballindalloch is probably the toughest with some rough going just after Glenfarclas but you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of Ben Rinnes before the elegance of the manicured lawns of Ballindalloch Castle and their Estate Distillery.

The second section from Ballindalloch to Tamdhu is mostly plain sailing along the banks of the Spey.

The third section from Tamdhu to Aberlour is the easiest section taking in the award-winning architecture of Dalmunach distillery and onto Aberlour for the handover.

The fourth and final section from Aberlour to Glenfiddich is a breeze and a surprise awaits you near Craigellachie before the grand finale taking you through Balvenie and Glenfiddich to claim your drams and catch your breath before the post-race celebrations.
