About Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Marathon | 25th May 2025 10:00am
The marathon at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival is regarded as the fastest marathon in the UK, making it the ideal race to bag a new PB or embark on your first 26.2-mile race. Runners will be treated to stunning city views with some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks as well as the picturesque East Lothian coastline. See route map.

Half Marathon | 25th May 2025 08:00am
Just like the marathon, this half marathon course offers real PB potential to runners in truly beautiful surroundings – from the Scottish capital’s iconic landmarks to the tranquillity of the East Lothian coastline. See route map.

For any further information, please see the race organisers FAQs and race terms.

Why run for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation

Lung cancer is the UK’s biggest cancer killer, taking the lives of more people than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancers combined. Your support means we can continue our vital work and stop lung cancer from cutting lives short.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only UK charity solely dedicated to supporting everyone affected by lung cancer. This means lung cancer, and lung cancer alone, is at the heart of everything we do. It is the focus of every research project we fund, every person we support, every life we save. It is our one and only priority.

We devote every day to improving the lives of people living with lung cancer. We put everything into discovering new ways to diagnose and treat lung cancer. We spend every minute fighting this disease so that, one day, we will live in a world where no one dies of lung cancer. Join us in our fight and sign up for the Edinburgh Marathon festival today.

I have my own place at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival

If you already have a place at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, we would love to have you on our Roy’s Runner’s team. There’s no fundraising commitment but any money you can raise will help support our vital work to stop lung cancer from cutting lives short. Our fundraising team will support you with any fundraising you do, as well as give you tips and ideas to raise even more money.
