Discover Edinburgh on the Run!

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival Running Tours are guided tours around Scotland’s capital city. Delve into the history, the characters and the scenery of this beautiful city as your highly experienced guide leads you through the narrow streets and hidden areas that you might not get to see otherwise.

More than just a walking tour of Edinburgh, this is a gentle jog through the city, and because of the pace we’re going, we can enjoy seeing a lot more than you would on a walking tour. An EMF Running Tour gives you the perfect opportunity to see some unexpected sights mixed in with the cultural history of the place.

The tour starts at the entrance to the impressive Scottish Parliament building in the picturesque setting of Holyrood Park. The first kilometre will take you up to Calton Hill from where you will get a great overview of the city. The rest of the tour will take you through parts of the old and new town of Edinburgh before you finish up at the Historic Scotland Education Centre.  

There will be stopping points along the way to take in the sights and hear about Edinburgh’s history from your tour guide.
