The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is just days away with thousands expected to put their best foot forward.

The annual event will see thousands of people taking on a hefty 26.2 miles through Edinburgh and the East Lothian coastline. Along with the main run, others will take part in shorter races including the 5k, 10k and half marathon. There are also junior runs for children to join in on the fun.

With this, many parts of the roads in Edinburgh and East Lothian will be closed throughout the weekend from Friday May 24 until Sunday 26th.
