Edinburgh Castle

Open only to International Runners, this is your opportunity to enjoy a pre-race (marathon, half, relay or otherwise) jog with fellow runners while exploring Edinburgh in the Year of Homecoming Scotland. At each stop along the route you will hear some of the history that makes Edinburgh one of the fascinating and picturesque cities in the world. 

Each entrant gets a technical t-shirt, porridge breakfast, goodybag, drink and an amazing jogging tour of Edinburghs' famous landmarks. 

The 3 mile route will take you in a loop starting and finishing at Dynamic Earth next to the stunning Holyrood Park, the route will take you past Edinburgh Castle, the historic Royal Mile, the Scottish Parliament Building and Holyrood Palace.  This is your opportunity to see the great sites of Edinburgh at a leisurely pace. On return to Dynamic Earth, runners will receive a technical t-shirt, goody bag and a free breakfast from Stoats Porridge Oats.

The sponsor of the International Breakfast Run is Stoats Porridge Oats. Stoats Porridge Bars were established in late 2004 with a mission to provide the finest flavoured organic porridge to on-the-go consumers.  The porridge has proven popular at music festivals, sporting events and in urban locations amongst health conscious consumers. 


Feedback from consumers found that they were also seeking a tasty, healthy snack bar to eat on the-go.
