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.
