Entries are now open for Great Winter Run in Edinburgh on Saturday 10 January 2015. The event will see hundreds of youngsters take part in the 2.5k Junior Great Winter Run, followed by thousands making their traditional start to the 2014 running season with the 5K Great Winter Run.
The 5K course follows Queen's Drive around Arthur's Seat. The first kilometre climbs up past St Margaret's and Dunsapie Loch before rewarding participants’ hard work with some amazing views of Edinburgh as you circle Arthur’s Seat.
All finishers will receive a long sleeved souvenir Great Winter Run T-shirt, medal, timing chip, and finishers’ pack. Locally sourced gourmet food will be available post-race for those who have worked up an appetite.
After finishing, participants will have the chance to welcome some of the world's finest athletes to the Scottish capital in the afternoon for the Great Edinburgh XCountry event. The race will be televised live on BBC1 and is free for spectators.
Those who took part in the Great Edinburgh Run earlier this year will receive a £5 discount when entering the Great Winter Run. For more details, and to enter, visit the event website.
