Marathon Exhibition Starts Today

Edinburgh Marathon Festival logo

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival kicks off today with a major exhibition at Holyrood Park in the centre of Edinburgh. The exhibition is billed as the Edinburgh Marathon Festival Hub and offers runners and their friends the chance to relax ahead of Sunday's marathon and half marathon.

They're will be a terrific buzz at the Hub with Real Radio in attendance, lots of great food outlets and the chance to get advice about hydration and nutrition. Runners can also find about great international races to take part in, access information about training and fitness, and pick up a bargain.

You can also talk to the team at SCOTTISH RUNNING GUIDE - we've teamed up with Salomon to bring you a brilliant 'Top To Toe' gear prize that includes shoes, jacket, top, shorts and back pack. There are two great packages to be won - one for men and one for women. Please drop by to say hello, pick up a copy of the new summer edition of SCOTTISH RUNNING GUIDE and choose between jelly beans and jelly babies as your favourite race boost.

Edinburgh Marathon Festival Hub provides a helpdesk function and race services for runners to pick up race packs and get information. It also serves as a start/finish location for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 5K,10K, junior races and breakfast run which will be held on Saturday, May 21.
