EMF Marathon

This flat and scenic route throughout the historic streets of Edinburgh sets you off to a great start, with an overall elevation drop of 50 meters you will be hard pushed to find a faster route.

With historic landmarks and picturesque fishing villages it’s no wonder this event is raked so high among runners.
