The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is a major city event that involves almost 40,000 runners across several events. On the Saturday there are kids races plus the 5k and 10k (both VERY hilly). The Half and the Marathon (both mostly flat) are run on the Sunday. We had club members compete in the longer three events as recorded in the results below. Claire Hanratty had a good run on a hilly 10k course finishing 8th in her category and stating that this was a truly scenic course. Mark Jones was first home in the Half Marathon M60 category. Will Bowden Green picked up a hard-earned marathon PB. Emily paced Risto to his Half Marathon debut. Good efforts all round. We would all recommend this event though weather can play a part. Saturday was beautiful but Sunday was wet and windy, particularly so for the marathon.
