About The Club
The picturesque Firth of Forth coastline forms the backdrop to this scenic Half Marathon, Relay and Family Fun Run.
Starting from the park land along north eastern coast of Edinburgh at Cramond, the route follows a south easterly course along through the Firth of Forth side developments of Leith, along the beach side promenade of Portobello continuing further southwards to the quiet picturesque town of Musselburgh before completing the 13.1 mile route at the grandstand finish of Musselburgh race course where your friends and family can cheer you on as you pass through the finishing tape.
In accordance with our health and safety policy, refreshments will be provided on the day in the form of water stands places strategically around the race course. Runners and their families will have purchase their own food from the nearby shops after the race if they wish to eat.
All of the gate receipts generated by the crowd go to the Red Cross. Our race event is sponsored by Discovery UK.
If you don’t feel you can complete the course alone why not sign up to the Half Marathon relay and bring along friends and/or colleagues to collectively complete the 13.1 mile course.
The big race itself takes place for Sunday 16 March 2008.
