The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is Scotland's biggest running festival and a fantastic event for a range of abilities. There are 9 races over two days with something on offer for everyone, including the marathon, half marathon, Hairy Haggis relay, 10k, 5k, and junior races.

Take in the sights of Edinburgh on this famously flat route alongside 40,000 other runners and cheered on by the amazingly encouraging crowds along the way.
