Edinburgh Marathon Festival Virtual Challenge – May 2021

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival Virtual Challenge is your chance to put all those hours of training into action. Virtually join thousands of other runners across the country on Sunday 30th May to complete this marathon in your local area.

Recreating the Marathon Vibe

Many of us are missing our usual social interactions – and at marathon time this can be the make or break moment for many a runner. So get your local community involved! Use your contacts to set up support along your route to cheer you on. Doing laps can help keep people involved in what you’re doing. Be sure to follow the Edinburgh Marathon Festival’s tips on how to plan a safe route.

And When You’ve Completed Your Challenge

Upon completing your Virtual Challenge, you will login to your My Details account and self-declare you’ve completed it by typing your finishers time into a text box. You will also add the date you completed your challenge. Your finisher’s pack & other items will then be sent to you in the post & your details will be added to the Finisher’s page.
