Edinburgh Half Marathon - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Due to concerns over public safety, and in-keeping with current advice from the UK government regarding the current COVID19 outbreak, the organisers of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival have decided to postpone the event from 24th May until 6th September 2020.

You can still register for a #TeamBones place in the event by clicking the JOIN #TEAMBONES button on the right-side of the page. If you have any further questions about the event, please email fundraising@bcrt.org.uk.


Fast & flat, the Edinburgh Half Marathon follows the marathon course which was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first half marathon or you are looking for a PB. The Edinburgh Half Marathon has sold out every year since 2012 and is one of the largest half marathons in the UK.
