Find out everything you need to know about running the Loch Ness Marathon, 10k or 5k for Macmillan.
Public entry is now open for 2013 on the Loch Ness Marathon website|. After you sign up, make sure you join Team Macmillan|.
Please fill out our application form| and return it to us. We will then be in touch within three working days of receiving your application to let you know if you have been successful.
We will cover your registration fee, but ask you to raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship for Macmillan in return for the place. Please note we do not have guaranteed places available in the 5k and 10k race, only the marathon.
If you require any further information please do contact us on 020 7840 4619.
If you have your own place then we simply ask you to raise as much as possible and we'll provide you with the same level of care and support that our charity guaranteed place runners receive.
We ask that all our charity guaranteed place runners pledge to raise a minimum of £400 each. This will be due in around one month after the event. Of course we will give you all the materials, encouragement and support you will need to make sure you smash that target.
Your 'own place' means that you have registered for the Loch Ness Marathon directly with the organisers through their website www.lochnessmarathon.com|.
You would have also paid a registration fee for that place. Once you have registered for your place you would have received a confirmation email from the organisers.
A 'guaranteed place' means that you have completed a Team Macmillan guaranteed place application form and you were notified by Macmillan, via either a phone call or an email, that your application was successful. Then you will receive a fundraising pack from us.
In return for one of our places, we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship for Macmillan.
When you join Team Macmillan you will be supported throughout your entire marathon experience. In addition to our initial fundraising and training pack, we will send you regular newsletters full of tips to help your prepare for the big day.
You will also be invited to our post-race recovery tent after the race, where you will receive some well-deserved refreshments. And if that isn't enough, we will give you the loudest support possible throughout the race from our Team Macmillan supporter point.
Of course! When you sign up to run the Loch Ness Marathon with Team Macmillan we will provide you with a comprehensive training pack and regular newsletters full of top tips, including advice from our Team Macmillan patrons.
We will also advise you of other useful sources of information to help you prepare for the big day.
If you get injured whilst training we recommend you contact your GP, physio or specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to run. If you do need to withdraw you will need to let the Loch Ness Marathon race organisers know as soon as possible. Please also let Macmillan know.
You will receive your race information pack from May onwards from the race organisers. Please note this is an information pack only and you must collect your race number and timing chip during pre-race registration at Bught Park the day before the race.
Go to www.lochnessmarathon.com| for more information on the Loch Ness Festival of Running. You will also find information on travel and accommodation.
As a team we hope to raise over £65,000 in the Loch Ness Marathon. The funds raised from this event goes such a long way to help people affected by cancer, for example:
