fades as the sun begins to brighten up the day. 2,000+
eager runners board coaches in Bught Park, Inverness for
the 42 mile trip to Whitebridge - over an hour's journey
- the long way around Loch Ness to the start. We get to
run back the quick way!
And quick it is - with 7 of the first 9 miles downhill,
you can get off to a great start in this magnificently
scenic race, no surprise it's often voted in the top 10
best marathons in the UK.
The weather was kind, sunny but cool. I took advantage of
the fast first half and just kept going as best I could
through to the finish back in Bught Park, surprising
myself with my best time for nearly a year.
You even get a tin of Baxters Soup in the goody bag too,
and you don't get much more Scottish than that!
