Race for Life 5k & 10k – Edinburgh routes


The Edinburgh Hopetoun House course is set within the beautiful estate of Scotland’s finest stately home on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The route starts and finishes on the main drive up to Hopetoun House, leading participants around the picturesque estate. The route covers an area of outstanding natural beauty taking in views of the Forth including the road and rail bridges, set on both footpaths and grass areas.

Unfortunately, due to the majority of the course being on forestry and gravel paths this event is inaccessible to wheelchair users.
