Background information on the Edinburgh Marathon.
On the 15th of June 2003 Scotland's capital hosted its first city marathon in 17 years. 3000 runners took to the streets of Edinburgh out of which over 1/3 were raising funds for charity. Edinburgh Marathon 2004 built on this achievement on 13th June with over 5000 people taking part. By 2005 the Edinburgh Marathon was firmly established as one of Scotland's premier sporting and fundraising events.
