The Great Edinburgh Winter Run Course

Why not sign up to our 5 mile or 10 mile Great Edinburgh Run on Sunday 23 April? Both routes take in the best Edinburgh has to offer and is the only run thorugh the city centre.

The Simplyhealth Great Edinburgh Winter Run is a great way to kickstart your New Year and keep you motivated throughout the Winter months. So why not bring the family along and enjoy a day out in the city with the addition of the Simplyhealth Junior Great Edinburgh Winter Run and Simplyhealth Great Edinburgh XCountry in the afternoon, we'd love for you to be part of it. 


The Course

The course starts in Holyrood Park and travels up Queen's Drive around Arthur's Seat, passes by Dunsapie Loch and then returns back towards Holyrood Park.

As our runners' safety is paramount to us, we may use the contingency course in the case of bad weather.
