  • Take part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival for brain tumour support

    Edinburgh Marathon Festival for brain tumour support

    Edinburgh Marathon Festival 24th - 25th May 2014

    We have guaranteed places available for runners in the Edinburgh Marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K races

    With all our work and supporters in Scotland, we are taking team brainstrust north of the border. We have places available for runners in the 2014 Edinburgh Marathon and the other events (including a 10k) that form the revered festival.

    This is a fantastic event in a beautiful city, and you know what? It has been voted the UK's fastest (we read that as EASIEST!) marathon by Runner's World. Read on to find out more...

    "Flat and fast", that's how Runner's World described the Edinburgh Marathon in 2008, before voting it the UK's fastest marathon. Indeed, this means that the Edinburgh Marathon is the perfect 'first' marathon, or the best event to set a new personal best.

    The marathon starts are at 9.50 and 10.00am on Sunday the 25th May 2014. The exciting course takes in the Scottish Captial's beautiful sights, and has a really lively atmosphere to keep you going. It won't be easy, but for those brave enough, it will prove to be a great achievement and a fantastic way to raise much needed funds and awareness for our work with brain cancer patients and their carers in Scotland.

    Places are also available for the following events that form the Edinburgh Marathon Festival:

    • EMF Half Marathon
    • EMF Team Relay
    • EMF 5K and 10K
    • EMF Junior Races
