The Edinburgh Half Marathon has sold out every year since 2012 and is one of the largest half marathons in the UK, ideal if you’re wanting to set a personal best or taking on your first half marathon for CPT! Starting on Potterrow, in the grounds of one of the oldest universities in the world, the route takes you through the very heart of Edinburgh to the Royal Park before heading east towards the coast. Reaching Musselburgh you’ll run past the famous golf course before heading further east towards the historic village of Preston Pans finishing within the vast playing fields of Pinkie School.
