Edinburgh Marathon

Sunday 26th May 2013

A few Abbeys have entered the Edinburgh Marathon, and being sociable types we’d like more of you to join us.

Edinburgh is one of the flattest marathons around (in fact, it’s a net downhill course) and was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World in 2008. So even if you are a serial marathon runner, this is a crucial PB opportunity. There is also a half marathon on the same day so even if you think a marathon is not for you but you fancy a weekend in Edinburgh then come along!

The weekend falls over a Bank Holiday so we were thinking of travelling up on the Saturday and staying at least a couple of nights, so we can celebrate on the Sunday night and enjoy the city!

Entries are now open and you can enter at If you are entering, let Jim know because around February time we’ll start a marathon training programme.

  1. Advance train tickets for the bank holiday weekend have been released, so book your Edinburgh tickets now if you want a bargain. I’ve just booked mine, so there’s no backing out of this marathon now!
