October 5, 2014 Glencoe Marathon
 
Description
 
October 5, 2014 Glencoe Marathon & Half Marathon, 10K Glencoe, Scotland, United Kingdom Address: Phone Number: 01567 820 409 Fax Number: Email: info@wildfoxevents.com Official Race Website: http://www.glencoemarathon.co.uk Welcome to the second year of the Glencoe Marathon, a 26 mile trail run that ascends a total of 1,608 metres through the heart of Glencoe and into the foothills of Ben Nevis. The exciting news for 2013 is that first direct are on board as sponsors and we are turning the event into the GLENCOE MARATHON GATHERING with the MAMORES HALF MARATHON and the GLEN NEVIS 10KM so there are distances to appeal to runners of all abilities. The full off-road marathon route snakes through the pass of Glencoe, surrounded by the towering remains of this ancient super volcano, before climbing 500 metres up the fearsome Devilís Staircase. From the eastern edge of the Aonach Eagach Ridge you look straight onto the mighty Buachaille Etive Mor (the great herdsman) before dropping back to sea level at Kinlochleven where the Mamores Half Marathon starts. Climbing up through the Mamores the route undulates until the descent into Glen Nevis and the base of the mighty Ben Nevis, the UKís highest peak.
