Edinburgh 24

Introducing Edinburgh 24, a 24-hour loop race situated in the iconic Royal Holyrood Park. Over a 24-hour period, challengers will complete as many laps of the 5K looped route as physically possible. Spiralling below the rocky summit of Arthur’s Seat, the course offers a varied elevation profile guaranteed to keep runners on their toes. The nine categories provide something suitable for all abilities.

Choose to enter the full 24-hour race, the 12-hour version, or the 6-hour version. Participants can enter as an individual or a team of four – the latter involve tapping in teammates, allowing for some down time in-between running stints. As you run through the oasis of parkland in the City Centre, you will catch spectacular glimpses of Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and Old Town, as well as the distant Pentland Hills and Firth of Forth at different hours of the day. At the core of the route will be the round-the-clock Edinburgh 24 event village, where refreshments will be available and spectator support will be warmly encouraged!
