Be a part of Scotland's biggest running festival and run the Edinburgh 10K

Edinburgh 10K

When: 26 May 2018

Where: Edinburgh

About: The Edinburgh Marathon Festival 10K is an increasingly popular race distance, a great step-up for those who have completed a 5K in the past, but aren’t quite ready for the half marathon distance.

Starting and finishing near Dynamic Earth, this beautiful, scenic route takes place in Holyrood Park in the heart of Edinburgh. The route offers stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and panoramic views of the city.

Runners head past the steep sides of Arthur’s seat, The Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace. You will also pass St. Margaret’s Loch, Dunsapie Loch, Duddingston Loch, the Pentland Hills and with a panoramic view of the City. Doubling back on itself you will run through Duddingston Village, Innocent Railway Road and back to Queens Drive, dashing through the cheering crowds to the finish at Holyrood Gait.

Enjoy the spectacular views and join in the 10k fun for this not to be missed festival.
