What is the Edinburgh Marathon Festival?
**Change to event dates** If you have already signed up for a place, you have automatically been moved to the new date. Please see below.
The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is an awesome event that offers runs to suit all abilities.
The marathon takes you past some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks and at times has fantastic views of East Lothian coastline. It’s rated as the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World magazine, so it’s also a great course if you’re looking for a good finishing time or a personal best.
As well as a full marathon, the EMF offers a half marathon, 10k, 5k. There are even junior races so that younger family members can get involved too! Or if you want to enter as a team of four you could do the fantastic Hairy Haggis Relay. This is a 26 mile relay split into four legs with each runner running one leg. We’ve yet to have a OneKind team do the Relay so we’d love it if you could pull a team together for us this year!
Standard entries for 2019 are available until January 2019, or you can enter with a OneKind charity entry so don’t delay, contact us today if you want to take part as the event sells out every year.
