The organisers for the Edinburgh Half Marathon have just announced a change in their registration deadline for the half marathon distance.

Please see their statement below:

“Since the exclusive charity entry period for the Edinburgh Half Marathon started last week, charity entries have continued to be very popular. As a result, the Edinburgh Half Marathon is extremely close to total capacity and will close to all new entries imminently.

We appreciate that both the Edinburgh Marathon and Edinburgh Half Marathon will be closing significantly earlier than in previous years, and this may have had an impact on your promotion and recruitment timelines.

We would like to reconfirm that the earlier closure of these events for 2024 will be as a result of the unprecedented uptake of charity entries from fundraisers"


Therefore the Trussell Trust can no longer offer any places for this event. If you are interested in any other ways of supporting the Trussell Trust plesae do email us on [email protected] and we would love to hear from you.


Join us for the biggest running festival in Scotland and help us end the need for food banks in the UK.

Fast & flat, this course was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first half marathon or you are looking for a personal best. The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK, behind only London.
