Support us Events Stirling Scottish Marathon The Simplyhealth Great Stirling Run features a city centre start and finish. The full marathon starts in the city centre near Stirling Castle; runners will then make out towards Doune, passing Blair Drummond Safari Park. Runners enter Bridge of Allan and complete a loop of the University of Stirling. You will return to Stirling through a long, scenic route before finishing alongside Kings Park. If taking on the full marathon distance seems too daunting, why not take on the marathon's little brother event instead? The half marathon distance will take place alongside the marathon, starting in the city of Stirling. You can sign up on the Stirling Scottish Marathon website or get in touch with our fundraising team for more info.
