Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2018 weather forecast

Running the Edinburgh Marathon

Sat 26 MaySun 27 May 2018

The Edinburgh Marathon on 26/27 May is part of a huge summer of sport in Scotland.

Held over the Spring bank holiday weekend, the Edinburgh Marathon is one of nine races being held over the Edinburgh Marathon Festival weekend on 26-27 May.

The marathon course is fast and flat, voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a personal best. The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK, behind only London. There will also be a 5 km, 10 km, half marathon, team relay and junior races over the weekend. Check the official Edinburgh Marathon website for more information

Starting on Potterrow, marathon runners will pass both the Gothic Rocket and Gosford House on the 26 mile route.
