Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK. Starting on Potterrow in the grounds of the very heart of Edinburgh. With a descent of almost 90 metres to near sea level, we believe that this is the fastest marathon route in the world.
As you pass Greyfriars Bobby on your left, you also take in the National Museum of Scotland on your right, before heading over the High Street and down The Mound. Don’t be surprised if you see a few shoppers stop and cheer as you then run past the Scottish National Gallery and into Princes Street Gardens, with the iconic Edinburgh Castle as your backdrop.
The route then takes in the ‘Gothic Rocket’, otherwise known as the Sco...tt Monument, as it meanders down the historic Royal Mile, heading towards and past the somewhat controversial Scottish Parliament building. Here you can look up and take in the spectacular Arthur's Seat, as well as the Palace of Holyrood, before departing the Royal Park and heading east towards the coast.
As you reach Musselburgh, you’ll run past the oldest golf course in the world, where it’s documented that golf has been played as early as 1672, before heading further East on the flat to Gosford House, an imposing neo-classical mansion which was one of the last great architectural commissions of the celebrated Scots architect, Robert Adam. As you turn and head back along the coast, you’ll see the beautiful finish line ahead, one of the greatest sights for any marathon runner!
