The Scottish Half Marathon 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 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. It doesn’t matter if this is your first or your hundredth running event; this is one not to be missed! It's fresh and its exciting - give it a go and set your 2021 challenge today! Whatever your finish time, you’ll be a champion to children all across Scotland who need your help.

Sign up today for a free charity place and pledge to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship for Children 1st!
