The car park adjacent to Holyrood Park on Queen’s Drive gets extremely busy with the event and other park users. Parking is also available in the underground car park next to Dynamic Earth. But please don’t assume you will be able get a parking space there and allow plenty time to find an alternative parking place. Drop off points are Holyrood Park Road or Regent Road. Otherwise, you may have to walk 10-15 minutes to the starting area so plan your journey accordingly. Pedestrian access is available via all entrances. Runners are encouraged to consider public transport or car sharing.
