Part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, the fast and flat course follows the same route as the full marathon and is ideal for first time half marathon runners or those looking for a new PB. This increasingly popular route takes in some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks and is a great alternative for those not wanting to take on the full marathon.
