All the avid runners aren’t satisfied with running in the park, down the beach or around the block. After years of practice and dedication, they get ambitious and want something more.

Even marathons in their home towns or countries become less interesting, so it’s understandable if they start traveling in search for more exciting marathons in other parts of the world.

So, if you’re a marathon runner, who’s slowly getting bored with what’s offered to you nearby, here are the most scenic and gorgeous marathons around the world:

1. Sedona, Arizona

Maybe it sounds biased, but Sedona simply cannot be skipped on this list. For marathon enthusiasts, Runsedona is the perfect opportunity to compete and engage with other runners.

The course is breathtaking and scenic, so if you also enjoy nature, this place is perfect for you. Arizona boasts a lot of canyons and hills which can be a welcome and exciting challenge for runners.

Also, since Arizona is arid and basically a desert, marathons are usually in winter. The upcoming 2020 marathon will be in February 2020.

Aside from it being home to marathon tradition, Sedona is also beautiful during all seasons which makes it a perfect place to visit throughout the whole year.

2. Loch Ness marathon, Scotland

For those preferring lovely Scottish nature, Loch Ness marathon is a perfect choice. The track itself can be a bit tricky since it tends to have a couple of undulations and an uphill section, but for those who truly love running, this shouldn’t be a problem.

This race is extremely scenic since it’s surrounding by Highlands. The whole route is far from the regular routes in the middle of the city, so if you prefer to get moving in a peaceful and quiet place, then Loch Ness marathon will be just for you.

The atmosphere is friendly and casual, and there’s even a hot meal after the race. Locals are very welcoming and supportive which can only be a plus…
