The Strathearn Marathon, held in beautiful Perthshire, is a new marathon in one of the best areas of Scotland for running. The race is organised by Strathearn Harriers, a club with an established record of running popular races such as the very successful Crieff 10k and the Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay. We hope the race will become established as one of the friendliest Scottish marathons.
The second running of the Strathearn Marathon will take place on SUNDAY 9th JUNE 2013, starting at 9.00am, and the race is now open for online entry. The route follows predominantly quiet B roads in Strathearn, starting and finishing at the Cultybraggan Camp just outside Comrie, with about 1500 feet of ascent.
The route initially heads south west up Glen Artney before a turn back to the east and then south on the B827 towards Braco. This stretch of the route gets up to a height of nearly 800ft. Just after the 10 mile mark, the route joins the A822 north for a short stretch before carrying on along the route of the old Roman road, and then joining quiet back roads into the southern edges of Crieff. At the 18.5 mile mark, the route turns west along the South Crieff Road to Comrie, before returning to Cultybraggan.
The Strathearn Marathon is organised with assistance from the Comrie Development Trust, owners of Cultybraggan Camp.
