The Culloden Run 17.46k and the Culloden 10K are events devised by leading charity Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland in partnership Run4It and the National Trust for Scotland, they will take place on Sunday October 25th 2015.
Both the 17.46k run (10.83 miles) and the 10K race are road runs based at the NTS Culloden Visitor Centre near Inverness.
The 17.46k run pays homage to the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and will provide a scenic but testing route for runners to ‘battle with’ and passes by the prehistoric Clava Cairns and under the imposing railway viaduct over the River Nairn.
The Culloden 10K will provide a “flatter” and faster course for runners and joggers of all standards looking to run in an historic landscape. Recognising the sanctity and historic status of the battlefield the running routes will have no impact or presence on or near the actual battlefield site or associated monuments.
For an entry fee of £21.85 both runs will have an electronic chip race timing system plus full event route support, marshals and route signage. The Culloden 10K and 17.46K runs were the Winner of the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards ‘Best Sporting Event 2013′.
