Edinburgh Marathon

  • Sunday 27 May 2018
  • Edinburgh
  • Minimum Sponsorship: £600.00

Take part in the shortest marathon in the UK!

Fast and flat, this course was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it's your first marathon or you are looking for a PB. The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK, behind only London.

A beautiful scenic course, the Edinburgh Marathon passes along historic Scottish landmarks like Holyrood Palace and Gosford House, following the coast road and travelling through the Golf Coast, home to 22 golf courses. You'll pass the extinct volcano Arthurs Seat and run through Holyrood Park. The Edinburgh Marathon showcases the best that Scotland has to offer and will be an adventure you'll never forget.
