Entries Open For Kilomathon

KilomathonEntries are now open for one of the UK’s most unique distance running events – Kilomathon. The event will be held in Edinburgh on Sunday 20 March 2016, featuring metric equivalents of marathon distances.

The distances on offer are13.1k, 6.55k, and a 2.62k for junior runners. They are said to be ideal for runners wanting to tackle a little more than a 5K or a 10K.
 
The race course winds through Edinburgh’s beautiful cycle path network beginning at Ocean Terminal with views of the Firth of Forth and past the Royal Yacht Britannia. It continues through leafy Victoria Park onwards to a rousing finish in front of the West Stand at BT Murrayfield Stadium.
 
Race director, Sandra Scott, said: “Kilomathon is the perfect race distance. Whether you are a seasoned runner wanting to set a new PB at a unique distance, or you’ve run a 5k or 10k and are looking at stepping up to a longer distance, or even a first timer looking to try a race for the first time, Kilomathon has an event for you.
 
“With a stunning traffic-free course and an incredibly inspiring finish line at the home of Scottish rugby, Kilomathon is truly an event for every runner to tackle.”
 
Kilomathon is hosted by GSi Events, organisers of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, Bournemouth Marathon Festival and Scottish Half Marathon.
 
Discounted early bird entries are available until Wednesday 19 August. For more information and to enter, visit the Kilomathon website.
