Voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runner’s World in 2008 - the excellent Edinburgh Marathon Festival is a terrific race series to achieve those PBs. Enjoy a fantastic all-encompassing route which takes in some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline.

If you're not quite ready for the full marathon just yet, there’s also the half-marathon, 10k, and 5k to sign up to!

Plus the festival has a number of great races for juniors which are a fantastic way to get children active and encourage them to get involved in running.
