The annual event has grown in popularity since its inception three years ago and 2017 was no different. Around 5,000 runners headed down to the East Lothian coastline on a stellar year for the event, which saw three course records broken. Runners took full advantage of the stunning flat routes, taking in the famous Golf Coast along the way.

For the second year, the Scottish 10K kicked off proceedings, starting at 9am at Musselburgh Racecourse, before the Half Marathon got underway at 11am from Meadowmill Sports Centre. An estimated half a million pounds was raised for charitable causes, and plenty of personal bests were achieved!

Thousands of supporters lined the stunning East Lothian routes on what was a bright, mild September morning. The final furlong at Musselburgh Racecourse provided the perfect backdrop for runners to bask in their achievements and muster a sprint finish in front of the large crowds as the finish gantry came into view. Once over the line, runners were able to kick back with a beer or glass of champagne and a bite to eat in Musselburghs stunning picnic area.

Take part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and explore the beautiful views of Edinburgh. It will be held on 25/26th May and offers a marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k.

The Edinburgh Marathon was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World. Enjoy a fantastic all-encompassing route taking in some of Edinburghs most iconic landmarks as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline.

Directly preceding the Marathon, the EMF Half follows the same fast and flat route, offering genuine PB potential. This increasingly popular race distance is a fantastic alternative for those that dont fancy the big 26.2.

The 10K & 5k fall on the Saturday of the Festival weekend and are run in the stunning surroundings of Holyrood Park. Starting and finishing near Dynamic Earth, these routes offer striking panoramic views of the city and Edinburgh Castle.

Following on from the success of our inaugural Glentress Trail Races back in February, we are pleased to announce two new Winter events to Glentress Forest. Glentress Winter Tail Half Marathon is a great late Winter challenge for all abilities. The route will play to all strengths from climbers to descenders, with faster flatter running on open forest roads to a little more technical single track on black graded MTB routes. 10k the previous day.
