Marathon/Half Marathon and Cycle Sportive
Event Cancelled - Sat 7th of Sep 2019
It is with great regret that we have to announce that the Highland Perthshire Marathon and Half Marathon Run and Bike due to take place on Saturday 7th September 2019 has been cancelled.
Despite carrying out the necessary route availability checks with the relevant parties before opening the event for entries we have just been informed that major works are shortly about to begin which renders part of the route impassable on health and safety grounds.
Unfortunately we do not have sufficient time to identify an alternative route and carry out the necessary background work to seek fresh approvals.
We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience that this will cause and hope that the event will be able to return in the not too distant future. Arrangements are in hand to refund any entry fees as soon as possible.
The Rotary Club of Aberfeldy & District welcomes you to Highland Perthshire

Join us for the Highland Perthshire Marathon/ Half Marathon and Cycle Sportive, Run or Bike on Saturday the 7th of September 2019. This is the seventh event we have held, and we are doing so in partnership with some National and Local Charities. A great big thank you to all our Sponsors and Charity partners, for all their help, advice, and funding in the preparation and running of these events.
As we are all volunteers, we do not take any fees nor have we any paid staff, so all the funds we raise through this event goes to Charity. We are also able to keep the entry fee realistic with great value for your money but without reducing the quality of your experience. Have a quick look around the site and see how we have over the past six years raised upwards of £100k for charitable causes.
We have provided a secure online encrypted facility through EntryCentral to take your entry and payment and you will be provided with an immediate receipt. Click the EntryCentral logo before 30thJune 2019 for an early bird discount. For postal entries we have provided you a Download the entry form, from this site which you can return with your payment to our Event Secretary.
We really do think that this is one of the best value for money packages on the Scottish circuit. Included in the price is: free camping and car park – post race refreshments – shower – swim - ceilidh – a medal for all finishers whatever your event - place medals in all categories fot the Marathon/Half Marathon runs. - a commemorative item for all paticipants. Hard to believe we know but it’s just honest to goodness value.
We are limited to 150 competitors for the Marathon, 450 for the Half Marathon and 100 in each of the Cycle Events. We are working very hard to make your visit extremely enjoyable and rewarding, join us and see for yourself.
