Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2018

Edinburgh Marathon

The annual Edinburgh Marathon Festival is this weekend! We have 118 children from Broughton Primary running on Saturday, which is an amazing number. There are also lots of parents taking part over the weekend, as well as Mrs Rushforth and Mr Horan from school!

Last week our fantastic runners picked up their special Broughton t-shirts they’ll be wearing on the day. That should make them easy to spot if you are going along to spectate and cheer them on!

Today all our runners had some special photographs taken, altogether in our school playground. It took a bit of organising to get everyone to stand correctly and look at the camera at the same time, but we got there!

We’re raising money to continue our Culture Fund- please do what you can and share with family and friends. You can follow our fundraising link at:

We hope to see as many supporting spectators as possible this weekend! Good luck to all of our runners, from the youngest nursery pupil to the oldest adult!


Good Luck
