Starting in the grounds of the historic University of Edinburgh, the route takes in iconic sights including the Scott Monument and the Royal Mile, before heading east towards the coast.

If you don’t fancy the distance, why not take on the half marathon, 10K or 5K.


Why run with the British Red Cross?

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. We’re part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, and we believe in the power of kindness. Every step you take and every pound you raise will help fund this work.

As part of Team Red Cross you will be supported throughout your event preparation. Our local fundraiser based in Scotland will be on-hand to encourage you with your fundraising, answer any questions you have and to thank you for all of your hard work.

You will also receive:

  • a comprehensive fundraising pack full of tips and advice to help you reach your sponsorship target
  • dedicated support, including training advice
  • a British Red Cross running vest once you've raised £100
