Welcome to Highland Perthshire
After the tremendous success of our 2016 event where more than 350 participants completed their chosen event we are delighted to announce the date for the 2017 event.
2nd of September 2017
Entries will open in December with discounts for early bird entries so keep a close eye on Entry Central.
The 2016 event took place in near perfect conditions with Highland Perthshire providing a fantastic backdrop for the event. We would like to thank all of our sponsors, marshalls, charity partners, helpers and above all, the athletes who took part for making this such a fantastic event. The event has grown and developed over the past 4 years and has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charities both National and local.
Listed below is just some of the feedback we have had:
“Great day on Saturday - thanks to all involved in organising, marshalling, catering - everything! Really enjoyed it. See you next year!”
“We’re just home from holiday and have just opened the medals for the Highland Perthshire Marathon (cycle). I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the event, and the ceilidh in the evening finished off the weekend perfectly! Thanks to all who were involved in the organisation,”
“I want to share my delight at receiving a medal for being 3rd vet female for the marathon. It was a lovely surprise and certainly well received.
Many thanks to yourself and your team for sending this medal and for putting on such a fantastic event! My husband and I loved it. Great course (even with THAT hill coming out of the Estate) and very well marshalled.”
“Many thanks for putting on and organising Highland Perthshire Marathon & Half-Marathon. This was my first race in over 25 years,having reached my 60th birthday in June. My son decided I needed to celebrate like he old days. Around 15 of us had a great day and I was delighted with the stewarding throughout the 13 mile I ran. The organisation at start and particularly the finish was excellent. I was so glad of the tea and biscuits at the end.
Thanks again to everyone who made the day a huge success for all of us who participated.”
“Thank you for all the work everyone put in to making Saturday such a success again! My son, husband and I enjoyed taking part again. I was 'chuffed' to get 3rd place in the ladies old fogeys age group (even if there were only 3 of us in the group...) and look forward to receiving the memento of this when you have a chance to send it - something to show my grandchildren!”
“Just a quick email to thank you for your hard work before, during, and after the marathon!”
“A special "thank you!" to the lovely ladies at the refreshments stall after the finish, just what I needed after such a tough run! Well done, and see you next year!”
“I completed the half marathon yesterday, and should like to thank each of you for what I feel was the best of 17 different ‘runs’ I have completed over 20 years or more, (including the London Marathon, Great North Run, Edinburgh and Glasgow runs). I enjoy running on my own and am never disappointed in being near the back....my aim is to finish and as mentioned, enjoy the day, and the friendly, informal run you organise made for a most enjoyable day.”
