Event Information:

Princes Street is one of the streets covered by the Edinburgh Marathon in association with Oxfam. This is a marathon race that has been held each year in Edinburgh, Scotland since 2003, usually in May. It is run over the traditional distance of 42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi). The principal charity partner for the marathon is Oxfam. It also supports many other charities - including the other official charities, Macmillan Cancer Support, British Heart Foundation and Breast Cancer Care.

Since 2008 the race has been titled the Albert Bartlett Edinburgh Marathon for sponsorship reasons. The first edition of the Edinburgh Marathon under the current organization was held on 15 June, 2003 and drew 3,000 participants. The following year saw over 5,000 take part; many of whom raised money for charity. In 2004, over £2m was raised for 150 different charities. The 2005 marathon was watched by 75,000 spectators along its course.

The 2006 race was marred with financial difficulties and was nearly cancelled at the last minute but for assistance from Edinburgh City Council. Even so it attracted around 11,000 runners and 100,000 spectators. In 27 degree heat the race was won by Kenyan Joseph Mbithi in two hours sixteen minutes - just outside the race record. Angela Howe was the first Scot to win the race, being the first woman to finish. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is divided into areas that generally encompass a park (sometimes known as "links"), a main local street (i.e. street of local retail shops), a high street (the historic main street, not always the same as the main local street, such as in Corstorphine) and residential buildings. In Edinburgh many residences are tenements, although the more southern and western parts of the city have traditionally been more affluent and have a greater number of detached and semi-detached villas.

The historic centre of Edinburgh is divided into two by the broad green swath of Princes Street Gardens. To the south the view is dominated by Edinburgh Castle, perched atop the extinct volcanic crag, and the long sweep of the Old Town trailing after it along the ridge. To the north lies Princes Street and the New Town. The gardens were begun in 1816 on bogland which had once been the Nor Loch.
