The Edinburgh Half Marathon takes place on the same day as the Marathon. This race is also known as very fast and flat, as the course is the same as the full marathon. The Edinburgh Half Marathon takes runners from the heart of the city and along the coast to the finish in the Pinkie Playing Fields. For the first 5km the runners will descend 100 metres, giving you the chance to get a quick start to the race!
