With only 10 weeks to go, organisers of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival are urging participants to check their online predicted time before this Monday's (March 19) deadline. On race day, runners will be allocated timing pens according to their predicted time, so as close an estimate as possible is essential.
Organisers hope accurate predictions will lead to a smooth and hassle free start to the event, with competitors grouped alongside runners of similar ability. You can update your predicted time by visiting the My Details section at the event website.
In other news, participants of this year's Edinburgh Marathon Festival can look forward to their very own E-goodybag. The virtual goodybag will include a range of discounts, special offers, and bargains accessible for all runners in the lead up to the race. This electronic feature, however, will not mean an end to the post-race goodybag, which runners will still receive.
Organised for the weekend of May 26 / 27, organisers of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival have already reported substantially increased numbers for this year's half marathon, 10k, and 5k events. For more information, visit the event website.
