Saturday 19th September 2015 is a new date for your diary! The Scottish Half Marathon is the newest event on the UK’s running calendar - come and be a part of it!  

The route is seriously flat & rapid - if you want to set a personal best for a half marathon, then this is the event for you. Starting conveniently at 11am just outside Edinburgh, you run along the magnificent East Lothian Golf Coast before finishing in the final furlong at Musselburgh Racecourse, Scotland’s oldest racecourse.

If you don't fancy doing it alone, we also have the Duo Challenge event which allows two participants to run the half marathon distance between them - you just need to decide who gets the glory leg!

If you've never run before, or this will be your 100th running event, you can't afford to miss out on what is going to be the 'must-do' running event of 2015. It's fresh and it's exciting - give it a go and set your 2015 challenge today!
