The Murrayfield Racers were an ice hockey team in Edinburgh, Scotland, founded in 1952 (as the Murrayfield Royals) changing their name to the Racers in 1966. The team won the British Championship 4 times in 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1972. The club was also the 86/87 and 87/88 British Hockey League Champions and played in the Premier Division of this league from 1982 to 1995.

Additionally, the club won the Northern League on 7 occasions - in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1975, 1979, 1980 and 1980 and the Benson & Hedges Cup in 1993.

In the mid-90s the club became the Edinburgh Racers. Today, Edinburgh's ice hockey team is the Edinburgh Capitals.
