A real must. This is one of your must do's. Down hill for the first four miles then flat along to the finish. You are supposed to get a PB here. Started this race on a freezing day with extra throw away layers and a cap. I was rained on, freezing cold and finished with a tan marks. The course can be slippery over the cobbles when the weather wet. You will be running from Edinburgh centre and past the seaside. For this race my husband had to meet a pre-booked bus at a specific time so he could not hang around after the start. The finish seemed to split into three different exits so communicate where you will be meeting, my temperature was dropping whilst waiting to meet up, there were foil blankets provided in your finishers goodie bag. Get a bin bag as the foil blanked does not actually cover you all over, use them both together to keep the wind and cold out. LOVE this finishers medal and a great finishers T-shirt. Once finished you have to make your way to a bus park, for a pre-booked seat, to get you back to the start. There were loads of buses which left continuously. Although the queue to get on the buses were pretty one long.

Great Event. I recently did my first ever Marathon at Edinburgh. Really enjoyed it. The event was well organised and also included Half Marathon, 10k and 5k races and there was a fantastic atmosphere. The route was fairly flat which surprised me. I had a fantastic few days up there and look forward to running it again sometime.
