Why not sign up to the Great Edinburgh Run Family Mile for ages 3-15 or the Great Edinburgh Run 100m Toddler Dash on Sunday 23 April. Both distances will be held in Holyrood Park and are a perfect way to get the whole family active. For more information click here. 

The Junior Run, which is open to all children between the ages of 7 and 14 years old, marks the start of a busy day of sporting activities in Holyrood Park.  Also taking place throughout the day is the Simplyhealth Great Edinburgh Winter Run and the Simplyhealth Great Edinburgh XCountry. Get young runners excited about running; and as a reward for their efforts they will be rewarded with their very own long-sleeved t-shirt as well as that hard-earned medal once they cross the finish line.  

The Course

Starting on Queen's Drive in Holyrood Park you will head towards St Margaret's Loch where you can really test your cross country skills!

The final kilometre heads back on to Queen's Drive towards Our Dynamic Earth. Then it’s only a short distance back along Queen's Drive for the final straight!
