Loch Ness Beast Race


All good things come to an end

We would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to those of you who stuck with us throughout very uncertain times and for making our 2021 Loch Ness Beast Race an amazing success.

Behind the scenes of the Beast Race is a small but very enthusiastic events team who work on a number of outdoor events alongside our charity partner Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland. After much deliberating, we have made the very difficult decision to consolidate the energy of three events into one, bringing all the Beast Racers from across the country together in one location for a MEGA Beast Race at our Banchory venue, the birthplace of the Beast Race. Ultimately this decision has been made in response to the pandemic with rapidly increasing costs associated with hosting an obstacle course race (haulage, obstacle materials etc) and the continuing insecurity of covid restrictions.

To all the Beast Racers out there wanting to sign up again for the Loch Ness Beast 2022 we are truly sorry. We have loved delivering the event and it has been a big part of our lives for almost a decade... we will miss it sorely however we do have alternative event we think you might be interested in!

Don't miss out on the original Beast Race location in the heart of Aberdeenshire:

Banchory - Beast Race


We do have a replacement event for the Loch Ness venue which is very different in nature but equally, if not more, challenging. Say hello to the Loch Ness 24, an epic 24hr solo or team relay trail running race on the banks of the world's most famous Loch.

Take on the ultimate endurance challenge and clock up as many 7km laps as you can along the most spectacular trails through ancient Scots pine forest and along the beaches of Loch Ness. Soak up the festival atmosphere and camaraderie at the event village and camp out under the stars in the most iconic location.
