Edinburgh Marathon The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is one of the UK's major running events. Fundraising Pledge: £220 The route takes runners from the centre of the capital, through Portobello Promenade and out along the scenic East Lothian coastline before finishing at Musselburgh racecourse where hundreds of spectators will be waiting at the finish line. During the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, there will be a 5k, 10k, half-marathon and full marathon. If you already have a place and paid your entry fee through the event organiser, you can join our team as an Own Place runner. There's no minimum fundraising target, just raise as much as you can.
