Edinburgh Marathon

Help us race to every disaster by joining the Red Cross running team.

Rated as the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World magazine, the Edinburgh Marathon is a great course if you’re looking for a good finishing time or a personal best.

You can choose between the full or half marathon, or take on the challenge with friends, family or colleagues and run the Hairy Haggis Relay.

If you have a place in the Edinburgh Marathon, why not run for the British Red Cross?

By supporting the Red Cross, you will be helping people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.

You will also receive:

  • dedicated support including training plans and nutritional advice
  • a fundraising pack, full of tips and advice to help you reach your sponsorship target
  • a British Red Cross running vest
  • a free post-race massage in the Red Cross tent
