Edinburgh Marathon Festival - Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay

Event Date: Sun 26th May 2019

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival has something for everyone, from the full marathon and half marathon to a 10K, 5K, relay and junior races.  It’s an incredible festival of running over an entire weekend, with an amazing atmosphere not to be missed!

The Edinburgh marathon was also voted the fastest marathon in the UK, so it is a great race to enter if you want a personal best time! The route is typically picturesque with this year’s course starting in the city centre in the grounds of one of the oldest Universities in the world.  Participants will run past Greyfriars Bobby, the National Museum of Scotland, the Scottish National Gallery and Princes Street Gardens, with the iconic Edinburgh Castle as a stunning backdrop.

The route also takes in the Scott Monument, the historic Royal Mile, the Scottish Parliament building and the Palace of Holyrood, before heading for Musselburgh and a beautiful coastal finishing stretch!
