Big Fun Run Edinburgh

The Big Fun Run is a family friendly 5K run through Edinburgh’s beautiful Holyrood Park on Sunday 29th July 2018.

The event is not timed so there’s no pressure to race to the finish line! Just enjoy the views at whatever speed you want to complete the course! The Big Fun Run Edinburgh route starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on a tarmac path throughout, until reaching the finish area. There is a major hill to go up an down and wheelchair users may require assistance to climb and descend the hill which covers 4km of the route.

This is a great event for family and friends to enjoy together and even better Poppyscotland have places just for you! Join in the fun at The Big Fun Run Edinburgh and help to raise some much needed funds for our work at the same time.
