This ever-growing festival of running is now a major event in the Scottish sporting calendar. Starting in Edinburgh, the course heads out through East Lothian offering stunning views and an unforgettable running experience.
The full weekend of events attracts over 35,000 runners, with thousands more lining the course to support.
There are 11 races on offer over two days including the marathon, half marathon, team relay, 10K, 5K and junior races. There really is something for everyone, so why not make the most of the Bank Holiday weekend?
The Edinburgh Marathon Festival has had an economic impact of more than £25 million for Scotland’s capital and helped raise more than £30 million for hundreds of charities. Together with the Edinburgh Marathon Festival’s official charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, organisers are hoping to break all previous records and raise even more in 2021.
