Great Edinburgh XCountry

Free to spectate, live on BBC One and shown on the big screen in Holyood Park, you won’t miss a leap, lap or sprint finish at next year’s Great Edinburgh XCountry on Saturday 9 January.

For the most entertaining post-run recovery you'll ever have, watch some of the world’s best athletes stride over the mud and hills while you’re wrapped up warm and tucking into hot food and drink.

If you are competing, make sure you bring a change of clothing, wear plenty of layers and stick around to cheer on past, present and future Olympic heroes in Holyrood Park.
