Our goal


Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2023

With it’s start line in the incredible city centre, you’ll run through the very heart of Edinburgh when you take on this amazing challenge! Greyfriars Bobby, The Mound, Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyrood are just a few of the landmarks you will pass and maybe one of the reasons that this is the second largest marathon in the UK behind only London. Edinburgh has also been voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, so if this is your first marathon or you’re looking for a PB, this is the event for you!

With a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km and 5km option, there is an event for everyone! 

Join us today.

If you have your own place in the event, you can still join the team and receive the same support as our charity place runners! There’s no registration fee or fundraising target, just do the best you can and help make a difference to the lives of the veterans we support.
