Dunoon Ultra Marathon and Relay

Take part in Dunoon’s third Ultra marathon....the most scenic ultra in Scotland !

The Dunoon/Loch Eck 33miles (53k) Ultra Marathon will again start from the famous Benmore Botanical Garden and will take you through some of the area’s top beauty spots. Climb up the gorge path through magical Pucks Glen and then race along the forestry trail and climb high above Loch Eck.

You’ll be treated to fantastic views north and south of the loch, particularly as you reach the highest section of the run 600m above sea level. Descend through Glenbranter Forest and return south on the west side of Loch Eck. Then it’s back to Dunoon through the forest trails and natural woodland of Bishop’s Glen. This last mile stretches north alongside the beach giving you beautiful views of the hills above the stunning River Clyde. Don’t be tempted to cool off in the water! The finish at the iconic Victorian Dunoon Pier is just a sprint away !!!

Race registration and bus to Benmore Gardens are both from the stunning Dunoon Pier, which is also the finish.
