EMF Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2024

Fast and flat, this course was voted the fastest half and full marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a personal best.

With distances from a Kids Kilometre to the full 26.2 mile Marathon, and everything in between there is something for everyone at Scotland's biggest running festival.

This popular and ever-growing marathon festival takes place in Scotland's capital city on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May 2024 and continues through East Lothian offering stunning views and an unforgettable running experience.

Join 30,000 other runners, make your family, friends, and yourself proud, and through your efforts help ensure thousands of families across Scotland receive the vital hospice care for their babies, children and young people, where and when they need it.
