It’s was a very hot Bank Holiday weekend as thousands of runners took to the streets for the events of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. Set over 2 days, it sees many races of different distances. The Sunday saw some of our MAC athletes take on both the half and full marathon distance in sweltering heat.

Huge congratulations to…
