Virtual Edinburgh Marathon Festival

29th & 30th May 2021


Join in Scotland’s biggest virtual running festival.  Due to Government restrictions EMF 2021 is going to be a virtual event.  There are multiple distrances to choose from, whether it’s a full marathon, half marathon, team relay, 10k, 5k or junior races you’re after, the Virtual Edinburgh Marathon Festival has it all!

This is your challenge and your rules, complete your challenge in one day or over multiple days!  You can even choose your own date!  On completion you will receive a jam packed goodybag filled with finisher’s t-shirt, medal and more.
