The Most Histroic run in Scotland

Celebrating the very best of Scottish history and scenery, the much-loved Culloden Run returns in October 2022.

Join our clan and help people with chest, heart and stroke conditions live life to the full as you battle your way round the course.

Setting off from the NTS Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning Highland scenery as you tackle one of two routes:

  • The Culloden Run 17.46k is a testing challenge over a 10.83 mile route which passes through stunning scenery and by historic landmarks including Culloden Battlefield, Clava Cairns, River Nairn and the awesome River Nairn Viaduct.
  • The Culloden 10k is an exciting, fast, mostly flat route which passes around the quiet perimeter roads of Culloden Battlefield, rewarding runners with beautiful panoramic views of the Highland hills.

Suitable for runners and joggers of all abilities, it’s time to follow in the footsteps of the Jacobite rebels and take on the most historic run in Scotland!

Why it matters

By taking part in the Culloden Run, you’ll be helping to change the lives of people across Scotland.

Chest, heart and stroke conditions account for 40% of all adult deaths in Scotland. More people than ever before are living with chest, heart or stroke conditions.

And since the pandemic, the people we help have included those suffering the effects of Long Covid.

Just ask Troy

Last year, Troy, 53 from East Lothian suffered a stroke leading to the ‘darkest time of his life.’

He is grateful for the support provided by Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

“I have never felt more scared and alone than when I had a stroke.

“But life changed for me when I got help from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

“The team at this amazing charity rescued me and my family from the darkest time in our lives.”

We need YOU!
