Clark Road Cycle Path, Edinburgh > Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh




Age 15 & over

  • 6.5 km road running


Are you looking to step up from a 5K or 10K, training for a full or half marathon, or just looking for a new challenge? Kilomathon could be the run for you.

Ocean Terminal makes a stunning starting point for your run as you set off in the shadow of the Royal Yacht Britannia. Then it's on to Edinburgh's beautiful cycle paths heading inland.

Take in the wonderful surrounds of Victoria Park, and continue your journey on to the home of Scottish Rugby - the BT Murrayfield Stadium. If an epic finishing straight in front of the west stand doesn't inspire your best sprint finish, nothing will!

This event is part of Kilomathon Scotland.

The race ends in the magnificent Murrayfield Stadium ... A nice medal, snood, water and porridge bar in the finishers bag was nice. William M

Gave me a chance other than Parkrun to get out there with a lot of other people. I had cycled many times along the routes, and enjoyed them. Chris C

 Nice training run. Leanne M
