Come along and take part in the Women’s 10K Edinburgh! Maybe you’ve not done any exercise in a while and need a goal to motivate you, maybe you want to do something positive together with your friends and family, or maybe you want to fundraise for a worthwhile cause.
Whatever your reason, the Women’s 10K is the perfect opportunity for you to lace up those trainers and make a difference, either to your own life or someone else’s.
From the start on the Royal Mile, in the shadow of Arthur's Seat, to the finish line at Murrayfield Stadium.
Your goal at your own pace to make a difference to your own life or someone else's.
Revel in the crowd's encouragement.
You are welcome to complete the course at your own pace, however, there is a maximum time limit of 1 hour 30 minutes. This is very inclusive as even completing the route at a relatively slow walking pace will see you finish within 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you plan to walk the whole distance you are requested to allow runners to start in front of you.
The name 'Edinburgh' comes from the ancient Gaelic “Dun Eidyn” which means 'hill fort on the sloping ridge'. The Royal Mile runs down the East shoulder of this once active volcano and this is what gives the Royal mile its distinguishable geographical location. It was 325 million years ago during an ice age that the immense pressure of moving glaciers carved out its profile.
The Palace of Holyroodhouse, commonly referred to as Holyrood Palace, is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. The Queen is in residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse during Holyrood week, which usually takes place from the end of June to the beginning of July.
Holyrood Park is a unique historic landscape in the heart of the city, whose dramatic crags and hills give Edinburgh part of its distinctive skyline. The park contains a wealth of history and archaeology spanning thousands of years.
First mentioned in the Registrum Magni Sigilii Regum Scotorum (1363) as “the street called Newbygging [new buildings] under the castle”, the Grassmarket was, from 1477, one of Edinburgh’s main market places, a part of which was given over to the sale of horse and cattle (the name apparently deriving from livestock grazing in pens beyond its western end). The view to the north, dominated by the castle, has long been a favourite subject of painters and photographers, making it one of the iconic views of the city.
Get ready for a stadium finish at the iconic BT Murrayfield Stadium. In 1897, the Scottish Football Union, as it was then called, bought land at Inverleith. This was the home of rugby in Scotland until the first Murrayfield Stadium was built in 1925, on ground bought from the Edinburgh Polo Club, and offers runners the opportunity of a rare grandstand finish.
