The Glencoe Marathon Gathering The Glencoe Marathon Gathering taking place on Sunday 8th September in Scotland incorporates three fantastic challenges - the Glencoe Marathon, the Mamores Half Marathon and the Glen Nevis 10K. The Marathon is a tough 26.2 mile off-road race with a total ascent of 1,608 metres offering runners fantastic views of the stunning Scottish Highlands at every turn. Beginning in the village of Glencoe the route is split into two parts, both of which start near sea level, climb to a peak and then descend back down again. The route includes a climb of The Devil’s Staircase up to a height of 548 metres followed by a descent to Kinlochleven where the Mamores Half Marathon joins with runners finishing together at the Event Hub in Glen Nevis, under the shadow of the mighty Ben Nevis.
