Edinburgh Winter Run - CANCELLED

About Edinburgh Winter Run - CANCELLED

After a period of disruption due to the coronavirus pandemic, the aim of the event is to create a party atmosphere for all participants to enjoy, regardless of ability and age.

The chip-timed 5km, which presents an opportunity for both fun-runners and competitive athletes, follows an undulating single lap course around the iconic Arthur’s Seat. The Family Mile, which takes place on a flat out-and-back stretch of Queen’s Drive, is the perfect opportunity to introduce children to running and to exercise together as a family, while the Toddler Dash is a 100m ‘dash for the line’ for younger children (accompanied by an adult).

Everyone is invited to come resplendent in fancy dress in an attempt to host the largest fancy dress fun run in the UK.

Entry fees vary by event and include a finishers’ beanie hat and an event finishers’ medal for the Family Mile and Toddlers’ Dash. Early bird discounts are available until 30 November 2021.

In addition to the three running events, samba and steel bands will play against the stunning backdrop of Arthur’s Seat, while local radio DJ’s will motivate and entertain runners throughout the day.

There will also be a variety of stalls selling food, drink and merchandise.
