It’s the time of the year again that thousands of serious athletes, running enthusiasts and superstar fundraisers have been waiting for. Entries for Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2015, Scotland’s largest running festival, are now open!
Now in its 13th year, this popular and ever-growing marathon festival takes place in Scotland’s capital city on 30/31 May and 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 Edinburgh Marathon Festival is Scotland’s largest running festival of its kind with more than 30,000 runners expected to take part in 2015. There are seven races on offer over two days including the marathon, half marathon, team relay, 10k, 5k and junior races. So there really is something for everyone.
