Second Largest Marathon in the UK

One of the most popular marathons in the world, in the UK Edinburgh is 2nd in size only to London and sells out every year. It’s an iconic route passing Holyrood Palace, going through Holyrood Park under the watchful gaze of Arthur’s Seat and passing along the Portobello Promenade for some bracing seaside air.

The best of the festival is that all distances take in these epic sites and you run/walk what distance feels right for you.
