About this event

The EMF 5k is part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and takes place the day before the full marathon.

It starts and finishes at the beautiful Holyrood Park in Edinburgh. This is a 5k that involves a hill as it climbs up Queen's Drive, but the final km is all downhill, which guarantees a speedy finish.
