Congratulations to everyone who took part in another fantastic Baxters Loch Ness Marathon and Festival of Running as the event celebrated its 20th edition.

Baxters Food Group is very proud to have been headline sponsor for every event since the festival began. Every year runners taking part in the marathon, 10k corporate challenge, 5k or Wee Nessie enjoy a truly unique and memorable experience and the event brings a real buzz along the banks of beautiful Loch Ness and the town of Inverness.

In 2022 over 7,300 runners, including 70% from outside of Scotland, visited the Highlands to take part in the event. Once again, Baxters long standing support of the event provided the perfect opportunity to promote the brand and ‘be different, be better’ ethos as well as showcasing its products to a wide and vast audience.

Audrey Baxter, Executive Chairman and Group CEO of Baxters, commented: “Congratulations to everyone who took part in 20th edition of the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon and Festival of Running. It is a fantastic event, growing in size and stature over the years to become a key event in the runners’ calendar and showcasing this beautiful part of the world in all its glory.

“Baxters ethos is to ‘be different, be better’ and one of the reasons we have supported the event since day one is because those taking part have the chance to demonstrate these qualities in their endeavours and achievements; whether they are striving for a personal goal or fundraising for a cause important to them.

“Well done to every runner who has taken part this year and to the festival team for delivering another hugely successful event.”
