Edinburgh Marathon Festival (Postponed)

Run for MND Scotland in an Edinburgh Marathon Festival event in 2020.

Edinburgh Marathon Festival (Postponed)

Run for MND Scotland in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2020!

We are thrilled to offer charity places in all major races in the 2020 Edinburgh Marathon Festival (EMF), including the Edinburgh Marathon, Half Marathon, Team Relay, 10k and 5k.

The route for the event starts at Potterow, leading runners through the heart of the capital. It then passes Greyfriar's Bobby, the National Galleries on the Mound and then channels runners through cheering crowds of shoppers on Princes Street. The route will then flow past the Scottish Parliament before leading runners to the waterfront at Portobello, continuing to the finishing line and charity village in Musselburgh.

The Edinburgh Marathon is the UK's second-biggest marathon, behind only London, and was voted 'Fastest Marathon in the UK' by readers of Runner's World. The EMF is suitable for all abilities; whether you’re a first time runner or a seasoned pro.

If you already have you own place, but would still like to fundraise for MND Scotland, please get in touch with our fundraising team.
