Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, the organsiers of Glencoe Marathon Festival have taken the decision to postpone the race to 2nd May 2021. All existing places will be valid for the rearranged date.
The off-road marathon is an epic trail run that ascends a total of 1,369 metres from the foothills of Ben Nevis through to the heart of Glencoe. For 2021 we have taken a fresh look at the route and, in a change from previous years, the Marathon will now start in Glen Nevis, near Fort William. From there it follows the West Highland Way through Kinlochleven where the half marathon runners join the event. This enables all participants to descend the iconic Devil’s Staircase into the heart of legendary Glencoe, finishing in Glencoe Village.
We are delighted to be an official charity partner for this incredible running event. We promise to deliver an exceptional support experience all the way to the finish line, including:
- Regular newsletters
- A Cystic Fibrosis Trust branded running top to wear with pride on the day
- Exclusive access to our online training zone
- An invitation to our Cystic Fibrosis Trust runners Facebook group where you can meet and swap tips with other like-minded supporters
- Event day support including greeting you along the route and at the finish line

At the finishing line I met Emma my girlfriend and her mum, the looks on their faces really gave me a sense of the magnitude of what I had just done and calls with my mum and dad both telling me how proud they were made the accomplishment feel real and I wanted to do it all again.
