Edinburgh Christmas 10K & 5K Run routes
Edinburgh Christmas Walk:
On Saturday, participants in the Edinburgh Christmas Walk begin in the middle of Inverleith Park, looping round the western edge before entering the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh. After passing through the gardens, walk on the beautiful banks of the Water of Leith, before passing Fettes College and working your way back to the centre of Inverleith Park. For those accompanied by furry friends, there is an alternate route which bypasses the Botanic Gardens, giving you more time to spend down by the Water of Leith before rejoining the walk on Howard Street.
Sunday's 5k starts from the centre of Inverleith Park, next to the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh, before looping around the Water of Leith banks and past the historic Fettes College.
The first half of the 10K follows the same route as the 5K run, however, instead of finishing back at the Royal Botanic Gardens, athletes undertake a second loop. Participants will run on the opposite bank of the Water of Leith, through the beautiful roads of northern Edinburgh, before finishing back in Inverleith Park itself.
There will be a short children's event on Sunday afternoon in Inverleith Park.
