Did the Marathon in 2022
Lovely location and sunset. The course would have benefitted from less loops to run as was mentally challenging running the same 7k route 6 times. A big disappointment was that no food was available after the race as the caterer had left before the marathon runners finished. Catering had been advertised as being available after the race. We were starving and feeling lightheaded after running for 5hrs so this didn't help. Goodie bags were not given as advertised either, just a flapjack, 1/2 cup of water and a shoe wipe. A real shame as these unfortunate issues really let the event down. The organisers seemed lovely and friendly but sorry to say I wouldn't do more than a 10k here again.

Did the Marathon in 2022
A good flat course if you’re chasing a PB but the multiple loops in the half and full marathon distance was mentally challenging

Did the Half Marathon in 2022
I really enjoyed the race in a beautiful part of Edinburgh. It was a very hot evening and towards the end of the third lap they started to run out of water which was unfortunate so worth considering next time.

Great course for first timers! Having no elevation and knowing each turn point was excellent! Overall great run!

Unfortunately I didn’t feel well so didn’t go as well as I could but the atmosphere, people and views helped me finish it
