The Edinburgh Half Marathon takes place on May 27th 2018, and it has sold out every year since 2008! It’s a fast and flat course and is the second largest half marathon in the UK, behind only London. It departs from Holyrood Park and if you are seeking an introduction into marathon running or looking for a PB then this is the race for you.

It takes place on the same day as the Marathon and follows the same course. It’s also prefect for beginners and people looking to obtain a PB.


To take part in either of these races please register direct with the Edinburgh Marathon Festival . Please register here for the Half Marathon and here for the full marathon. If you are successful please then complete our online registration form to run for The Cure Parkinson's Trust. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Lottie or drop us a call on 0207 4873892
