Fast and flat, this course was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a PB. Part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK, behind only London.
