The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is Scotland's biggest celebration of running. With lots of events taking place over one weekend, from junior races, a 10K and a full marathon, there's an event for everyone.

The full 26.2 miles is a flat and fast course which has previously been voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runner's World. It's perfect for first-time marathon runners and those aiming to get a new personal best.
