How far can you go? Choose your distance at this year's festival

This surprisingly flat course takes in the historic landmarks of Edinburgh as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline - its perfect for runners chasing a personal best. You can choose to either compete in the half-marathon or the full 26.2 miles!

Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we’re there. Together we can rebuild children’s lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.
