The holographic renormalization group flows associated with marginally relevant operators are analyzed. The associated perturbative and non-perturbative beta-functions are calculated and the consistent scalar potentials are identified. The presence of a Zamolodchikov metric in the multiscalar case is shown to affect beta-functions starting at two loops.
