The Great Edinburgh Bupa Run

October 4th, 2012 · No Comments · edinburgh

We have been very busy at Edinburgh Festival Apartments this week with lots of last minute bookings for people who are either taking part or spectating the great Edinburgh Bupa Run which is on this Sunday 7th October 2013.

You can either do a 5k or 10k run the choice is yours, over 8000 people are expected to take part. The route covers some of the most scenic parts of the city starting and finishing in Holyrood park so here’s hoping there will be some good weather for all of those taking part.

This year we even have Scotland’s leading marathon runners, Olympian Freya Murray and Andrew Lemoncello looking to take the lead and secure domestic victories for the first time in the history of the event.

The route starts at Holyrood Park  just a 5 minute walk from our Royal Mile Edinburgh Apartment which sleeps 10 people in 3 separate bedrooms. This is a great apartment for families taking part that want to take in all of Edinburgh’s historic sites as everything is within walking distance. Waverly station is also within walking distance so no need for taxis when you arrive.

The course heads round the park towards the Royal Commonwealth pool nearby our Cavalry Park Edinburgh Apartment which is an ideal family apartment and benefits from private parking – a bonus whilst staying in Edinburgh city.

Going towards the finish line you will head back down past our Cannon-gate Edinburgh Apartment where we are sure the streets will be lined with supporters cheering you on towards your finishing medal.

We also have a couple who are both taking part who have opted to book our ultra modern Quartemile Edinburgh Apartment which is within the old Royal Infirmary building. The old building has been completely transformed with the use of modern materials and loads of glass which gives the apartments a bright outlook. So very best wishes to our Quartermile Edinburgh Apartment runners.

We also have some celebrity runners taking part this year who are staying in our Edinburgh Apartments but we cant tell you where in case  you turn up looking for an autograph!  But look out for Eric Pollard and Karl Munro from Coronation Street.
