Points Of Interest At Scottish Half

Scottish Half Points of Interest

With excitement building for the inaugural Scottish Half Marathon on 6 September, organisers are whetting people's appetites by releasing an image detailing the points of interest along the route. The fast and flat course will take in the 'golf coast' of East Lothian, with highlights including the site of the Battle of Preston Pans, Mussleburgh Links golf course, Musselburgh racecourse, Longniddry Bents, and John Muir Way.

Race director, Neil Kilgour, said of the course: "We have developed a route that is predominantly downhill and consequently is seriously rapid given the right training. By starting conveniently at 11am just outside Edinburgh, you can take part and run along the magnificent 'golf coast' before finishing in front of the grandstand of Scotland's oldest racecourse."
