Edinburgh Marathon Festival

27 - 28 May 2023 First event 9am Edinburgh Various fundraising pledges

If you're thinking about taking on a charity running challenge in 2023, now is the time to commit to it - and registration is now OPEN for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival.

Run the capital's marathon route for Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity and it will take you through Edinburgh’s old town and past some of the city's famous landmarks like the Scottish Parliament and Arthur's Seat, before continuing along the beautiful eastern coastline through Portobello, Musselburgh and Prestonpans and then turning towards the finish line.

We welcome the support of seasoned 26.2-milers and running novices alike so get in touch if you're looking to take on this famous challenge in 2023.

Our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way to help you fundraise.

And if the marathon is a little too far, no problem! EMF also put on a half-marathon and 10k, so you can aim for whatever distance you're comfortable with.

Our suggested fundraising pledges are:

  • Marathon - £500
  • Half-marathon - £300
  • 10k - £100

There's no entry fee for charity runners and we'll also send you a free running top after raising your first £100.
