Event Details

The City of Edinburgh Running Festival (CERF), Scotland’s foremost family running event, is back for its fifth year.


Taking place on 23 June at Meggetland in Edinburgh, the festival uses a unique handicapping system which gives each competitor an equal chance of winning, no matter their age or ability.



The competition includes the 800 metre race, the UK’s most lucrative race with a £1,000 prize for 1st place, and categories for both adults and youths.


CERF adds to a calendar of professional running dating back almost 200 years including Jedburgh Games and The New Year Sprint. CERF however offers some of the highest prize money available in the UK.


Open to friends, family, neighbours and anyone who wants to support the athletes and enjoy the evening event.
