Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Posted on Monday, 21st May 2018 at 12:43

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival takes place this weekend with thousands of runners expected to take part in one of nine races being held in the city.

With frequent services direct to the City Centre from locations such as Ingliston Park & Ride and Edinburgh Gateway, the tram is a great way to avoid expensive parking, which will be in short supply.

If your race starts at Potterrow, Princes Street tram stop is an approximate 15 minute walk from this location. If your race starts at the EMF Hub at Dynamic Earth, St Andrew Square tram stop is an approximate 20 minute walk.
