Overview

The 10 mile route is a unique distance for the city making it the perfect event for those wanting to stretch themselves from a 10k, or for those in training for a ½ marathon. Starting at 9.30am in Holyrood Park at the foot of Arthur’s Seat, the course takes runners past some of the city's most iconic sights including Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriars Bobby, the Scott Monument and the Royal Mile. With lots to see and do in the area, thousands of runners and their families make a weekend of it in Edinburgh every year. If you need that extra incentive, why not raise funds for our new charity partner the STV Children's Appeal while running this event. Every single penny you raise stays in Scotland to support the children who need it most.

I live in Edinburgh so know the route, can be a challenging 10 miler as a few hills and certainly not the easiest, the course is all round the city centre taking on all the views, usually held the week before London marathon so a nice final run for anyone that is running London, ...Read full review
