Edinburgh Marathon Festival
Join us at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival - there’s something for everyone with 5k,10k, half marathon and relay races taking place!
Passing by Arthurs Seat, Musselburgh Racecourse and Gosford House, you’ll run past some of the most beautiful views of the East Lothian coast and city that Edinburgh has to offer. What’s more, we will be there with you every step of the way; from fundraising support in the lead up to the event, to cheer stations on the route, to celebrating with you at the finish line.
With a full range of distances available, there really is something for everyone. Why not sign up for the Edinburgh Half Marathon or the Hairy Haggis Team Relay for four people instead? Or take on the 5k or 10k on Saturday around Holyrood Park?
Whatever distance you choose, every step you take and every penny you raise will help to fund vital research into blood cancer. Be Bloodwise and join our team today.
Charity places for this event are now open!
The Edinburgh Marathon Festival also has junior races available from 5k to 1k! The junior races are a fantastic way to get children active and encourage them to get involved in running. As with the 5K and 10K races, the routes will be run around the beautiful Holyrood Park on Saturday.
- 5km - 11-18 year olds
- 2km - 9-12 year olds
- 1.5km - 6-8 year olds
- 1 km - 3-6 year olds
Everyone is welcome! We will be on hand to help you with your fundraising and training every step of the way and will also provide a fantastically colourful technical running top.
