Race news: The Edinburgh Marathon Festival was awarded the Best Sporting Event within the Central South East region at the Scottish Thistle Awards regional finals on Wednesday

The majestic Prestonfield House played host to the black tie event which also incorporated the Fife & Tayside regional finals. Guests were treated to a drinks reception, three course meal and entertainment from St Andrew’s university all-male a cappella ensemble, The Other Guys.

The awards were presented by Stephen Jardine and brought together a host of different businesses all excelling in their respective fields. Categories covered everything from the friendliest pub to the most hospitable hotel to the best outdoor or adventure experience.

And it was the Best Sporting Event category which was won by the Edinburgh Marathon Festival to the delight of Marketing Manager Annette Drummond who was on stage to collect the impressive trophy and certificate to mark the achievement.

She said: “It's nice to be recognised in what's been an extremely busy year for us. It goes without saying that the Edinburgh Marathon Festival would not happen without the volunteers, marshals and of course the runners who have helped make the event what it is today, so a massive thank you to them. We're already well under way in our preparations for EMF 2016!”

The 14th edition of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival takes place on 28th-29th May. Marathon entries have sold out for the past 6 years and look set to reach capacity at the end of December.
