Looking for accommodation for the Edinburgh Marathon?

Runners legs and feet running on tarmac

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is one of our favourite events of the year! In 2019, it will take place on 25th and 26th May.

Edinburgh Marathon Festival

There are nine different races over the marathon weekend, including the marathon, half marathon, relay, 5K, 10K and various junior races. So the whole family can get involved! If you're looking for Edinburgh Marathon accommodation, read on, as we have some great properties currently available near the starting line. 

The Marathon Route

The Edinburgh Marathon begins at 10 am on Sunday 26th May 2019. The starting point is at Potterrow. The route takes you through the city centre, along the Royal Mile and down to Holyrood Park. It then goes along the east coast and finishes in Musselburgh. This is one of the flattest and fastest marathons, passing famous landmarks and beautiful scenery. And it's the second largest marathon in the UK, after London. You can view all our holiday homes near the start line and below are some of our favourites in more detail.
