Edinburgh Women's 10K

Run With The Girls

Edinburgh's Women's 10K is back this autumn...

With the Barbie movie providing a sprinkling of 'girl-power' this summer, the baton will be passed to Edinburgh in the autumn as the city's Women's 10K gets ready to make its return on 22 October.

Starting on the historic Royal Mile, the city centre route takes runners past the Scottish National Gallery and into Princes Street Gardens, with Edinburgh Castle as a backdrop. It then goes past the Scott Monument and swoops past the Scottish Parliament building, before carrying onto Holyrood Park. Here runners will take in Arthurs Seat, as well as Holyrood Palace and Dynamic Earth, before heading on to the Grassmarket. From here cheering crowds will boost participants to their grandstand finish at BT Murrayfield Stadium.

But this event is about more than its stunning route - it provides women runners with the opportunity to take part in an all-inclusive event with no judgement, surrounded by a strong and supportive community of women making a positive change. Far more than just a 10K, the Women's 10K is a proactive, challenging way to engage women in physical activity and promote health & well-being all year round, as well as being a platform to raise funds for charity.

Organisers say: "We want you to come along and take part in the Women’s 10K Edinburgh. Maybe you’ve not done any exercise in a while and need a goal to motivate you, maybe you want to do something positive together with your friends and family, or maybe you want to fundraise for a worthwhile cause.

"A short run is better than no run. It's as simple as that! Fancy a challenge? Why not sign up to Women's 10K Edinburgh on Sunday 22nd October with a beautiful route through the heart of Scotland's capital."
