Baxters River Ness 10K and 5K fun run are part of our 2016 Challenge Series – and part of a whole weekend of running fun in Inverness.
‘Breathtakingly beautiful’, ‘friendly atmosphere’, ‘stunning scenery’, ‘flawless event organisation’, ‘felt like a festival not just a race’… are just some of the comments organisers had from runners in 2015 so why not come and experience it for yourself?
The Baxters River Ness 10K and 5K fun run are both part of thejogscotland Challenge Series, a selection of events across the country, specially chosen to be particularly welcoming for those who are new to running, or who just want a fun day out.
The Baxters River Ness 10K is renowned for its ‘PB’ potential, following a flat point-to-point course through the historic Highland capital alongside the banks of the River Ness. If you prefer a team approach to sport, then the 10K Corporate Challenge for teams of 4-6 employees is the ideal race for you.
The Baxters River Ness 5K Fun Run, open to all ages and abilities, follows a flat, scenic route alongside the picturesque River Ness to finish alongside other races at Bught Park.
Why not make a Highland weekend of it and come with family or friends? There’s plenty to entertain runners and spectators over the weekend with a free Sports Expo, Baxters Food & Drink Fayre, live music, kids’ activities and a Wee Nessie for under-5s.
For those looking for a longer distance, the Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular point to point route alongside the iconic Scottish loch and is quite possibly one of the most stunning marathon routes anywhere in the world.
