The Highlands are a lovely setting for the Global Energy Inverness Half Marathon which attracts nearly 3,500 runners. If you can't quite make the half marathon distance there is also a 5k fun run and 5k 'team attack' race that you can take part in.
The flat course starts on the banks of the River Ness at Bought Park which is close to the centre of Inverness. Most of the race follows the banks of the river and thus avoids the surrounding hills. You'll feel like an athlete when you finish at Queen's Park Stadium - make sure your mo-bot is up to scratch!
