The EMF 5k is part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and takes place the day before the full marathon, on Saturday 29 May 2021.

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