Limited parking will be available at the Inverness Sports Centre and Highland Council car parks. However due to ongoing road works around the Sports Centre and Glenurquhart Road, traffi flow will be slow on the morning of the event. We encourage you to park a distance away and walk to the Sports Centre.

Please do not park at the Ice Rink as this is private property and do not leave your car on the streets surrounding the Sports Centre/start area along the river as these form part of the race route. Illegally parked cars may be removed. Parking stewards will be on hand to give directions and information.

Please allow plenty of time to get parked and walk to registration.

Please download map for road closures around Inverness Sports Centre.
