About the day


Join us for a fantastic day of running for all the family on Saturday 10 January in Holyrood park, Edinburgh. The day starts as hundreds of youngsters take part in the 2.5k Junior Great Winter Run followed by thousands of runners making their traditional start to the New Year with the 5k Great Winter Run.

All runners will receive a long sleeved souvenir Great Winter Run t-shirt, medal, timing chip, finisher's pack as well as the excellent atmosphere and organisation you would expect at a Great Run event.

If you're taking part in the Great Winter Run make sure you stick around to welcome some of the world's best athletes to the beautiful surroundings of Holyrood Park in the afternoon for the Great Edinburgh XCountry. The event is televised live on BBC One and is free to spectate.

Plus, putting runners' taste buds through their paces, locally sourced gourmet food will be available to enjoy after working up an appetite earlier in the day.
