Scottish Half Marathon 2013 Championships
On this page
One of the longest running 3 in 1 events in The U.K. is being held in Moray for the 32nd time on the 1st September.
With beautiful scenery, enthusiastic & friendly locals and an extensive prize list, it is no wonder so many runners enter year after year.
This year the Moray Marathon has been chosen to host the 2013 Half Marathon Championships
Once again we thank The Macallan for being our main sponsor. 32 years with the same sponsor must be some kind of record
Thanks to their generous sponsorship, we are able to keep entry fees at the same level as 2012 so see you on the day.
A BIG thank you to all those volunteers who helped with the 31st Moray Marathons; those at registration, at the starts, in the park and round the course, the Red Cross, Inverness Radio Volunteers, many of whom had to be at their posts from start to finish, without you the races could not happen.
We also thank The Macallan for once again sponsoring our events and to the Chief Executive of Moray Council for presenting the prizes.
2011 Report: This was the 30th running of the Moray Marathon 3 in 1 event incorporating the North District Half Marathon Championships.
We had a record entry for the Marathon, a waiting list for the 10K and an almost full half marathon. The weather was kind, if a little warm for some, but almost all went to plan thanks to the many volunteer marshals, water station helpers, administrators, timekeepers & recorders, first-aiders, lead car drivers & navigators, WRVS caterers, baggage handlers, course layers and markers and many more who made it such a great event.
We also thank Marathon founder, Ed McCann for starting the race and helping with the prize giving. Thanks go also to Roddy Burns of Moray Council for presenting prizes.
Finally a big thankyou toThe Macallan for their most generous sponsorship.
Results of the 2012 events (Excel format)
The first Moray Marathon was held in 1982 and since then it has developed into a 3 in 1 running event incorporating the Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K Road Races through the picturesque landscape of Moray.
All 3 races follow the same clockwise circuit with the Marathon starting in the Cooper Park, Elgin, Half Marathon in the spectacular grounds of Gordonstoun School, Duffus and the 10K in the outskirts of Lossiemouth. The finishing line for each is the Cooper Park, Elgin with the 13th century Elgin Cathedral forming a dramatic backdrop.
Moray contains a great diversity of landscapes which include sandy and rocky shores, rivers, lochs and mountains. Most of these aspects have been incorporated into the Moray Marathons and 10K routes by taking runners on tarred roads, passing through woodlands, coastal areas, towns and villages. The physical nature of these routes with the relatively mild and dry climate of Moray makes them both interesting and enjoyable to all competitors and spectators.
The Half Marathon starts at 11:00am at Gordonstoun School; buses leave Elgin town hall at 9:45am.
The 10K also starts at 11:00am At Lossiemouth; buses leave Elgin town hall for the start at 10:15am.
On-course support cannot be guaranteed after 2.30pm. Click here for further instructions.
This is to help with planning the event and to reduce pressure on volunteer helpers on the morning of the races.
