With an overall elevation drop of over 50 metres, the Edinburgh Marathon is the UK's fastest 26.2 mile route and is ideal for novice and experienced runners.

First held in 2003, this popular race is expected to attract 17,000 entrants into the marathon and other distances. The Edinburgh Marathon enjoys stunning views as it heads east along the coast.

If you're not ready for a full marathon yet, try its sister race, the EMF Half Marathon.
