THE ORGANISERS of the Glen Scotia marathon are looking forward to welcoming a spirited crowd of supporters at the start of the race tomorrow (Saturday).
The 26.219 mile marathon kicks off at the ferry terminal and spectators are urged to go along and wave the runners off.
Although cars are not encouraged on the single track roads for the safety of the runners, there is no issue with people who want to show their support by driving on the main road to Southend, for example.
There were a couple of errors in the Courier’s report of the route last week.
The changeover for relays and other runners refuelling half way through the course is at Low Machrimore Farm, and runners will pass through Glenehervie not Glenbrekerie.
