**5K/10K

This event is ideally suited for novices and experienced runners alike, which is part of what makes it so good.

**Walkers will follow a similar route initially to the 5k and 10K, making their way out along the promenade and along to the scenic Cramond Village. From here, they will loop back around along Barnton Avenue East & West, passing Silverknowes Golf Course. The final stage is along Marine Drive and finishes back at the promenade.
