Yigal Zemach almost 5 years ago  

Ran it in 2009 (my 3rd Marathon, 1st time Edinburgh). Enjoyed it very much and made my time target. Organization is very good, excellant responsiveness before the race. The race day was unusually hot but this is not under the organizers' control... I loved the course views (green and blue) although it leaves the city after a few miles. The fan was supporting but I expected more crowd. All in all - I am happy I ran it. Recommended.

Edinburgh Marathon Runner about 5 years ago  

Loved it. I think one of those that i will try again. You should try it, see you there( maybe) Katja
