Edinburgh Marathon Festival

27-28 May 2017

From a team relay to a full marathon, there's a great choice for all running abilities over this long weekend in Scotland's capital. You'll pass by many of Edinburgh's well-known sights, including Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park, depending on the event you choose.

We have places in:

  • Full marathon – the UK's most popular marathon after London
  • Half marathon – fast and flat, perfect if you're looking for a PB
  • 10K – one of the most popular distances
  • 5K – perfect if you're new to running
  • Hairy Haggis Team Relay – run a marathon between you and three friends

In return for your support you will receive:

  • a guaranteed place in the event
  • a fundraising toolkit to give you ideas on how to reach your target
  • support from your local Regional Fundraiser to help you with your fundraising and ask any questions about the event
  • a bespoke RAF Benevolent Fund running vest.
