Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Edinburgh Marathon Festival

With nine events to choose from, ranging from the kids kilometre to full marathon, the Edinburgh Marathon Festival has something for all ages to take part in.

This fantastic festival offers events across the weekend of Saturday 23 May and Sunday 24 May with runs which take you from buzzing central Edinburgh down to beautiful East Lothian.

The marathon was voted the fastest in the UK by Runners World in 2008, meaning the half marathon and marathon routes are perfect for first time marathon runners and for those looking for a personal best.
