Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 May 2019

Interested in taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival? Right now may be the perfect time to be an early bird and sign up for 2019. Make the most of the long lead in time to perfect your training.

Now is certainly a great time to sign up - we are offering ***free charity places*** for runners of all distances who sign up by Hogmanay, 31 December 2018 (based on a minimum fundraising target).

By taking part in the UK’s fastest marathon course, you can take great satisfaction in knowing that every step you make on the road will help a young person or adult make a positive step in their life.

We'll support you through the miles of training, cheer you on the day, and worship you like the hero you are, all we ask in return is that you raise vital sponsorship to support our work.

You can choose between running the full marathon, half marathon, 10k or 5k races. If you don't want to do it all by yourself then get some running buddies and sign up for the team relay. There are number of different junior races taking place on the Saturday for ages 3-18, so no excuse for everyone not to be involved!

Whichever event you choose, if you run for us we'll provide:

  • Fundraising pack including ideas for how you can reach your target
  • A performance Venture Trust T-shirt
  • Sponsorship forms and collection tins
