Come and be part of Scotland's BIGGEST running festival!
This ever-growing 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 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 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.
We believe that no one should be excluded from the transformational benefits of community sport.
Access Sport is a UK charity providing opportunities for vulnerable and disabled young people to change their lives through sport and physical activity.
We make inclusion the norm by tackling the access barriers faced by disadvantaged young people, focussing on the causes of exclusion, not just the symptoms.
We do this by training, equipping and supporting community sports clubs, organisations and volunteers to provide inclusive programmes, unleashing their potential to transform the lives of under-served young people in their local communities.
We work across all sports - team sports such as football, basketball and rugby, through to sports such as tennis, climbing, yoga, boxing and many, many more.
