About the event

Fast & flat, this course was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a PB. The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK, behind only London. Join our team and make a difference.

On the day, you’ll join thousands of other runners who get to experience a truly uplifting atmosphere as they run through the streets of Edinburgh. You’ll also feel lots of pride when you cross the finishing line, knowing you’ve done something very special to improve the lives of people severely affected by mental illness.
