The Edinburgh Marathon Festival attracts around 30,000 runners annually with thousands of cheering supporters on the side-line. With 9 races to choose from over the two day event, there really is something for everyone. Not only do you have the option to run the classic 26.2 mile race, but also available is a half marathon, a 10K & 5K race as well as a team relay.

This surprisingly flat course takes in the historic landmarks of Edinburgh as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline – it’s perfect for runners chasing a personal best.

Every mile you run and every penny you raise will help us in rebuilding lives together.
