Run to beat blood cancer at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Join us at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, an event where there’s something for everyone with a marathon, half marathon 10k, 5k and relay races taking place!

The Edinburgh Marathon route sees you passing by Arthur's Seat, Musselburgh Racecourse and Gosford House. And you’ll run past some of the most beautiful views of the East Lothian coast and the city centre that Edinburgh has to offer.

Charity places are no longer available. However, if you have your own place through the event organisers please do join team Blood Cancer UK!

Why run for Blood Cancer UK?

  • Get your hands on a free high-spec running top
  • Access to professional training advice

We will be there with you every step of the way: from fundraising support in the lead up to the event, to cheer stations on the route, to celebrating with you at the finish line.

With a full range of distances available, there really is something for everyone.

Why not sign up for the Edinburgh Half Marathon or the Hairy Haggis Team Relay for four people instead? Or take on the 10k or 5k on 5 September around Holyrood Park? There is also a range of junior races for children aged between 3 and 18 to take part in, too
