Running and walking events in Scotland - what’s on
Running in Scotland is always a huge challenge, with its very varied terrain and unpredictable climate. Scotland provides a wealth of opportunity for runners of all ages and abilities, from leisurely jogs around the loch to competitive marathons and the more extreme sport of fell running. Of course there is always organised and/or charity walks for a slower alternative.
