Straiton-based Alex F Noble and Son is celebrating the completion of its busiest year to date at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival (EMF).

The dealership provided 11 vehicles for this year’s event, which, with well over 30,000 entries from across the globe is now Scotland’s biggest running festival and the second largest marathon event in the UK.

The 11 vehicle package supplied by Alex F Noble and Son included three new model Nissan NP300 Navaras, one of which was used as the lead clock car, with the other two as general ‘work horses’.

David Noble, dealer principal at Alex F Noble & Son Nissan said: “The Edinburgh Marathon Festival goes from strength to strength and has now topped our annual sponsorship programme for the last six years.

“This year saw us provide the largest number of vehicles to the EMF to date.

“All our 11 vehicles had to work harder than ever in fulfilling their various rolls, but I’m pleased to hear from the organisers, that all of them have again acquitted themselves extremely well.”

In addition, the dealership provided two branded Nissan X-Trails for race crew and three Nissan NV200 and three NV400 light commercial vehicles (LCVs) for transporting various items of equipment over the race weekend.
