Race Rundown: Edinburgh Half Marathon, 26th May 2019

Janet and Julia return to Scotland to run the Edinburgh Half Marathon

On a showery Sunday, 26th May, we finished the Edinburgh Half Marathon drookit, but with top ten in our age categories results, so well chuffed.  The new route offered a slower start as it was narrow and busy, but fine views of this beautiful city where we have run every emf half marathon since it began in 2010.  Now, it truly is the Edinburgh Half Marathon, passing Greyfriars’ Bobby, the castle, Scott Monument, Princes Street Gardens, running down the Royal Mile, by Holyrood Palace, through the Queen’s Park, and along the promenade to Musselburgh and Prestonpans.

It is a very well organised event, which is well supported by encouraging spectators keen to boost runners with jelly babies and inspirational quotes……..’that’s not sweat, it’s sparkle’ made us smile.
