  • 23 May – 24 May 2020

Originally planned for 23-24 May, we are aware of the announcement from Edinburgh Marathon Festival regarding the postponement of the event.

We have been told that charities will receive further updates from the organisers over the next few days. We will be communicating with our runners regularly to let them have updates once we know more, so please look out for emails from us.

We are disappointed for our runners who have put in so many dedicated hours and miles of training and have been enthusiastically fundraising for us over the past few months.

We are so grateful to our running community for their commitment and amazing support. We very much look forward to a fantastic event in later in the year and seeing all our supporters there.

Please bear with us as we gather more details. We will be in touch soon.

Join us for a weekend of sport at this iconic festival of running.

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is Scotland’s largest running festival, with over 30,000 runners expected to take part over the weekend. The flat course is suitable for both novices and experienced runners, and with five race distances from 5km to full marathon to choose from over the two days, as well as events for juniors, there really is something for everyone!

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival will be held from the 23rd - 24th May with the following events on each day:

Saturday 23 May:



Sunday 24 May:

Edinburgh Marathon

Places for 2020 are now open!
