Running in Scotland in September

In the Autumn (or Fall), Scotland is likely to experience temperatures ranging from around 8°C (46°F) to 14°C (57°F) from September to November. The colours of autumn are eye-catching and vibrant, as the trees change from green to fiery reds, oranges and yellows.

September weather here in Scotland can sometimes be hot and then very wet. Towards the end of the month when the leafs start to tumble some of the paths can get a bit slippy. The days are starting to get shorter and it is more noticeable.

September is also the month for some lovely races. The Hel N Back hill race, Loch Ness marathon are just two that spring to mind though everything has changed due to COVID.
