City of Edinburgh Running Festival

06 Jul 2018

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description


With high hopes of attracting locals and tourists alike to come and enjoy our famous Scottish hospitality and quality Open Athletics, The City of Edinburgh Running Festival will take place on the Friday, 6 July 2018 as an annual evening event.  An evening event is a new concept, since our sport traditionally takes place on a Saturday, or Sunday afternoon and we hope this will help differentiate the event as unique and exceptional.


Open Athletics is the term used by Borders Athletics, to describe the athletics circuit currently operating each summer throughout the Scottish Borders and North of England. Competition is on a handicap basis, whereby the theory is that each competitor should have an equal chance of winning, no matter their age, or ability. An official handicapper allocates each runner a starting mark based on previous performance, age and ability. The competition is normally heats, semi-finals and final.
