Take part in one of the UK's BIGGEST marathons!
The 2018 edition of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival will be held on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May. This ever-growing festival of running is now a major event in the Scottish sporting calendar. Enjoy a fantastic all-encompassing route which takes in some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline.
The marathon route is one of the fastest in the UK making that that elusive personal best a distinct possibility! Edinburgh Marathon joined the world's elite road races in 2012 by becoming the first marathon in Scotland to be officially recognised by the IAAF, the athletics governing body. The IAAF bronze label puts the race among the top 75 in the world making it a pivotal part of the sporting calendar for runners.
