Kilomathon Scotland 2020
OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM KILOMATHON:
We are disappointed to announce that we are postponing the Kilomathon event, which was due to take place on Sunday 5th April.
Amidst the ongoing concerns in regard the spread of the coronavirus and the impact this is expected to have in the UK in the weeks to come, we understand the requirement by the Scottish Government to ban mass gatherings in the interests of supporting our frontline services and public health.
Neil Kilgour Race Director said “We are saddened to have to make this decision but we believe that this course of action is in the best interests of our participants, our affiliate charities, the event team who deliver the event and the emergency services who support the event.”
“We are continuing to work closely with City of Edinburgh Council, the emergency service teams and our other delivery partners over the coming hours to secure and communicate a new date for the event which we expect to do on Wednesday.”
We understand the training and planning that is required by participants to undertake a very personal challenge such as this, and this has been taken into account when securing a new date. We expect to communicate with participants directly on Wednesday with full details of the new date.
For now, we encourage everyone to look after yourselves and those around you where you can, and continue following the advice given by the World Health Organisation to prevent the wider spread of the virus.
The Kilomathon Team

Taken part in a few 5K’s but don’t quite feel ready for a 10K yet? Then the Kilomathon 6.5K is the perfect race distance for you!
Training for a half or full marathon? Why not use the Kilomathon 13.1K as part of your training?
Got a young one who LOVES running? Give them the glory of a grandstand finish at BT Murrayfield Stadium!
Take in the historic Royal Yacht Britannia, the picturesque Victoria Park and enjoy a fantastic finish in front of the West Stand at BT Murrayfield Stadium. Don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits!
