Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Join #TeamHeldInOurHearts and be a hero in Scotland’s biggest and best running festival and help provide essential support to bereaved families in the community.

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is now in its 18th year and takes place on Saturday 25th May and Sunday 26th May 2024. This ever-growing festival of running is now a major event in the Scottish sporting calendar and is our biggest fundraising event of the year.

The full weekend of events attracts around 30,000 runners, with thousands more lining the course to support. There is something for everyone to choose from including: the marathon, half marathon, team marathon relay, 10k, 5k and junior races over the 2 days.
