Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2017

Be part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2017!

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival takes place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2017. This ever­growing festival of running is now a major event in the Scottish sporting calendar. Starting in Edinburgh, 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! Edinburgh Marathon joined the world's elite road races in 2012 by becoming the first marathon in Scotland to be officially recognised by the IAAF, the athletics governing body. The IAAF bronze label puts the race among the top 75 in the world making it a pivotal part of the sporting calendar for runners.

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is the UK’s largest running festival and it’s right on your doorstep! The full weekend of events attracts around 30,000 runners, with thousands more lining the course to support. There are 9 races on offer over 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.



The Edinburgh Marathon Festival has had an economic impact of more than £25 million for Scotland’s capital and helped raise more than £30 million for hundreds of charities. Together with the Edinburgh Marathon Festival’s Official charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, organisers are hoping to break all previous records and raise even more in 2017.
