The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is one of our favourite events of the year! In 2019, it will take place on 25th and 26th May.
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 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.
We have three lovely 1-bedroom apartments near the Edinburgh Marathon starting point. These are at Great King Street, Forrest Hill and on The Royal Mile. Ideal for individuals or couples. Plus, they all have additional beds, sleeping up to 4.
With several 2-bedroom rentals near all the action, you're spoilt for choice. These include apartments on West Newington Place, Fleshmarket Close and The Royal Mile. The perfect choice for friends, couples or families.
If you're coming to Edinburgh in a larger group, we have properties to suit all party sizes. For example, this 3-bedroom holiday let on Frederick Street sleeps up to 15 people, and this 4-bedroom townhouse on Greenside Row sleeps up to 14.

"What an amazing property. The rooms, décor, equipment, furnishings, etc were all high end and luxurious. Brilliant central location. We would highly recommend a stay here. Only problem is you might not want to leave."
"An exceptional place! Next to the high street and close to the public transport facilities. The place is sparkling clean and very well maintained. It is spacious and cozy. Lorna is extremely helpful and quick on her responses. 10/10 will stay at this place when I go back to Edinburgh."
