Around 100,000 spectators are also expected to watch races, including full and half marathons, 5km and 10km, held over Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 May.

In Edinburgh, widespread closures will affect areas including London Road, around Arthur’s Seat, Lochend Road, Seafield and Portobello.

Parking limitation and road diversions will be in place during various time slots over the weekend, though special arrangements have been made for local residents.
