Following the success of Edinburgh Marathon Festival last weekend (28-29 May), with over 30,000 runners, entries are now open for next year’s event. The 2017 Edinburgh Marathon Festival will take place on 27-28 May.
Organisers said: “If you, like us, are suffering from a bit of an #emf2016 induced hangover then we've got just the remedy - the 2017 Edinburgh Marathon Festival! Ohhh yes...no rest for the wicked! The dates for your diaries are 27 and 28 May 2017 over the Bank Holiday weekend.”
Due to the growing popularity of the EMF junior races, two new races have been added to the 2017 quota. There will now be a Junior 5K and a Kids Kilometre as part of the Saturday races.
Entries are already open at Edinburgh Marathon Festival website. You can take advantage of a discounted early bird price up until midnight on 12 June.
