The Edinburgh Marathon is Scotland’s most popular marathon. It began in 2003 and has continually grown in popularity and stature, having just received a 97% satisfaction rating in a recent Runner’s World poll. In numbers, the Edinburgh Marathon is second only to the London Marathon in the UK, with over 16,000 runners taking part. There is also the option of entering relay teams of 4 runners, each running 6.5 miles.

The route has changed over the last few years. Early comments aboout the hill have been accommodated, leading to what is now one of the flattest marathon courses, making the Edinburgh Marathon an excellent race for obtaining a personal best. It also boasts some great sites along the way.Since 2007, the Edinburgh Marathon has featured a fast and flat course called the fastest Marathon route in the UK, as the former course had become infamous for its hilly appearance. The start is placed on a fairly high level, and the course has an overall elevation drop of 50 meters. The route is thus both flat and nice and scenic, and it manages to attract both elite runners and runners with less ambitious goals than winning. Another move made to appeal to top runners is the chance for a free entry if you can run a marathon below 2:40
