Edinburgh: Entertainment

This Course Rocks!

Music every mile makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands and DJs will be playing a variety of music from alternative to classic rock, punk, funk and blues to jazz it up.

The bands set the tempo for the course, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.
