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 exist to restore a sustainable relationship between humanity and the Ocean. Our experience has taught us to tackle the full range of human actions threatening the Ocean. No ordinary NGO, Ocean Generation combines the disruptive energy of a youth collective with years of experience in storytelling through science and film. We are proud that our Ocean Intelligence youth engagement programmes have been endorsed by the Intergovernmental Oceanic Commission of UNESCO as a project under the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. our Youth Outreach Programme is at the heart of what we do. In 2021/22 we finished the development of a suite of three initiatives, targeted by age from 3-25 years old. Content progresses from a toe in the water for the very youngest to a full immersion experience.
We seek to engage youth in the wonder of the Ocean and then progressively develop knowledge and eventually stimulate collective behaviour-change actions appropriate for each age group.
