The event called "Dramathon 2019" will take place on October 19, 2019, but registration for it is already open. This is a rather highly specialized sports and alcoholic competition for true connoisseurs of whiskey. Mainly single malt, which is the main prize and determines the ideological component of the marathon.
The location of the race is the region known as Speyside, in the North East of Scotland. Therefore, if you do not like steep green hills, ancient castles, many bridges over rivers and rural lands, you better not come - the locals are categorically against the athletes overcoming the distance with loud curses. And also bagpipes, there will be a lot of them!
The finish line is always the same - at the Glenfidditch distillery, but participants can choose three types of courses, the routes of which run through different distilleries in the region. You run longer - you will be able to visit more points, although drinking along the way is still not allowed. This is both a plus and a minus of the Dramafon - here you cannot enjoy scotch tape during the race, but a good drink at the finish is guaranteed. Still, it's better to run 10, 21 or 42 km sober.
The dramaphone is also a chance to personally visit such famous Scottish distilleries as Glenfarclas, Ballindalloch, Tamdhu, Knockando, Dalmunach, Aberlour, Balvenie. By October, medals for marathon participants will be cut out of boards from old whiskey barrels. Last year, according to Forbes, there were 4, 000 of them, and the best result at the maximum distance was 2 hours 49 minutes and 48 seconds.
