Event description


The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is Scotland’s largest running festival of its kind. You can be a part of the action, whilst raising vital funds to help us support more people living with a brain tumour. And, with the marathon, half marathon and 10k over the two days, there really is something for everyone.

Join in the action and help people affected by a devastating and terrifying brain tumour diagnosis.

Now into its 15th year, this popular and ever-growing marathon festival takes place in Scotland’s capital city with Edinburgh Castle as its backdrop. Expect stunning views and an unforgettable running experience with this fast, flat route. 70% of the runners come from outside Scotland, so why not make a weekend of it in this truly beautiful city.

The full marathon kicks off on Sunday 28th May at 9:50am from London Road and 10:00am at Regent Road, Edinburgh.

You can also choose to run the half marathon (Sunday 29 May 2015, 8.00am at London Road & Regent Road, Edinburgh) or the 10K (Saturday 28 May 2015, 9am start) with team brainstrust.

Why join?

By running in the Marathon Festival, you’ll help us fund our support service for brain tumour patients and carers across the UK, and the resources they so rely on.

“brainstrust has been a shining light in my dark days. Just knowing someone is there is real comfort… It’s great to just know other people truly understand how hard it is sometimes”

Your participation in any of the Festival's events will be vital in helping us support more people in the UK who so desperately need our help. The funds you raise will go towards building resources for these people, which will help them feel less alone, less afraid and more in control in the face of a terrifying brain tumour diagnosis.
