Edinburgh Marathon FestivalEdinburgh, GB

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.

St Andrews Day ChallengeDeal, GB

30th November is St Andrews day and although we're in one of the furthest possible points of the UK from Scotland and we're about as Scottish as something that's really not very Scottish at all I do like shortbread and we do have a number of Scottish exiles who run with us quite often and would be rude not to mark the date as we have an event on it!

Race The TideHolbeton, Devon, GB

In the glorious private setting of the Flete Estate, Holbeton, Devon (PL81LW) we are hosting a Long marathon/Baby Ultra-Marathon distance race, its actually 29.5 miles. It involves 2 estuary crossings at Burgh Island and the Erme Estuary before finishing in the pretty village of Holbeton. This is the 2nd year of the races.

Courses are now designed so you can expect a lovely mix of private footpaths, coastal path, bridle paths, country fields and Woodland. However, the marathon incorporates the South West Coast Path on both sides of the estuary including a beach section at Bigbury-on-Sea and a run across the causeway to the privately owned Burgh Island.

On marked paths to the west of the island, we take you up to the top of the island, you descend and cross the causeway to continue the South West Coast Path further westwards climbing some awesome hills before racing the tide at Wonwell beach, across the estuary and running across Mothecombe beach. You then follow a circular route, continuing on the South West Coast Path for a few miles and on to the village to finish to pick up your well earned medal.

What you need to know about Marathon running

The marathon is the benchmark for any runner. Its history stretches back to the Ancient Greeks, and it now includes all the world’s most iconic running races. At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?
