Great Edinburgh International Cross Country


Free to spectate, live on BBC One and shown on the big screen in Holyrood Park, you won’t miss a leap, lap or sprint finish at this year’s Great Edinburgh XCountry on 9 January.  Mo Farah will be making his first outing in the Olympic year.

For the most entertaining post-run recovery you’ll ever have, watch some of the world’s best athletes stride over the mud and hills while you’re wrapped up warm and tucking into hot food and drink.

If you are competing, make sure you bring a change of clothing, wear plenty of layers and stick around to cheer on past, past present and future Olympic heroes in Holyrood Park.
