Manor School of Ballet swap ballet shoes for trainers


Dancers from Edinburgh’s Manor School of Ballet swapped their ballet shoes for trainers this weekend to train for this year’s Edinburgh Marathon Festival.




The young dancers hope to encourage others to sign up for Scotland’s biggest running festival and raise money for Macmillan to help people affected by cancer across Scotland.

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is Scotland’s largest running festival of its kind with over 30,000 runners expected to take part in 2015.




There are seven races on offer over two days including the marathon, half marathon, team relay, 10k, 5k and junior races.

The Festival takes place on March 30 and 31 and all standard entries close on Wednesday 15th April at 5pm.
