Team Scotland athletes Callum and Derek Hawkins were at the Grassmarket in Edinburgh during the week to launch the 2015 Morrisons Great Edinburgh Run with a little help from STV Edinburgh.

The Morrisons Great Edinburgh Run will return to the capital on Sunday 19 April with the ten mile route introduced last year and for the first time will feature the Morrisons Great Edinburgh Run Team Relay.

The new Team Relay event will allow teams of two to complete the ten mile course between them. The first section of the course will cover approximately 4.75 miles of hilly terrain and the second section will follow a gentler 5.25 mile route, including a downhill final mile. Both full ten mile runners and Team Relay runners will start and finish at Holyrood Park, with the Grassmarket hosting the Team Relay changeover point.

Today is Disabled Access Day. It is all about getting out and visiting a venue that you’ve never been to before – whether a cinema, coffee shop, sports centre or anywhere else. The flagship event will be taking place on the Royal Yacht Britannia and at Ocean Terminal in Edinburgh, where visitors can get discounted entry, try an accessible bus and meet assistance dogs & learn about the work they do.

You can also visit the Scottish Parliament building which will be offering public guided tours from 10.30 am.

“The Scottish Parliament extends an especially warm welcome to disabled visitors on Disabled Access Day. Additional tours have been arranged and special offers are available in the gift shop and cafe. There is also a chance to learn more about the ways in which the Scottish Parliament is accessible to disabled visitors.”
