THE COURSE ROUTE

To those who have run the Meadows Marathon in the past, you may notice that in recent years we've been forced to alter the course a little bit. This will be the case again in 2015, however we hope we've got a fantastic course for you, which will be of the correct distance.

As per usual, we have to have road closures lifted by 5 pm, so we ask that you only enter the Full if you can run sub 4 and a half hours.

If you have any questions, please email enquiries@meadowsmarathon.org.uk and we can try and answer them!

WEATHER

The Edinburgh weather in March can be anything from burning sun to drifting snow, but as we all know it is most likely to be cool with the threat of light rain… Make sure you check the weather forecast before the day and prepare accordingly. We will keep you updated by email on any plans in the event of forecast bad weather. It is essential that you keep warm before and after the race so be sure to bring something to wrap up in. There will be a limited supply of foil blankets for those who want or need them, but in order to keep costs down to a minimum and get as much money as possible to the people who really need it we predominantly ask you to take it upon yourselves to make sure you are equipped and prepared for the event. Thanks!

DO YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER THIS YEAR?

Each year, Meadows Marathon requires volunteers to help our event to reach its potential. We are looking for people who can help set up the course in the morning, marshall the course during the races, and help clear up afterwards. If you are unable to help out on the day, we will also be looking for volunteers to help out in the run up, doing jobs such as putting runner bags together and helping with all the other tasks that need to be done. In the past, runners have commented on how brilliant the volunteers have been, so if you want to be a part of a fantastic day, be able to look back and think "I did that", or just looking for something to put on your CV, we're interested in you. Email volunteers@meadowsmarathon.org.uk if you're interested!
