Fast and flat, the Edinburgh Marathon was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World making it ideal for your first marathon or if you're on a mission to beat your PB.

The race

Now in its 14th year, this popular and ever-growing marathon festival takes place in Scotland’s capital city with the Edinburgh Castle as its stunning backdrop. It continues through East Lothian offering stunning views and an unforgettable running experience.

With its fast and flat route, this marathon is one of the fastest in the UK so can deliver that elusive personal best for runners! 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 prestige of this event means that an amazing 70% of marathon runners come from outside Scotland, making this a truly international event. So why not make a stay of it?
