The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is now in its 16th year and is a major event in the Scottish sporting calendar. Starting in Edinburgh and passing right by Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, we'll be here to cheer you on as you hit mile five. Afterwards, the course heads out through East Lothian offering stunning views and an unforgettable running experience.

The marathon route is one of the fastest in the UK making that that elusive personal best a distinct possibility! If you're not quite up to the marathon route quite yet, there are 9 races on offer over the two days including the marathon, half marathon, team relay, 10k, 5k and junior races. There really is something for everyone, so why not make the most of the Bank Holiday weekend?
