Event description

Description

The Museum Marathon Edinburgh is part of the programme of events for the Scottish Festival of Museums.

The event is a sponsored walk (don't worry, there is no running involved!), following a route along many of the city’s museums and galleries, to raise money for charity. As the date also falls during Mental Health Awareness Week, the charity we have chosen to support is the Scottish Association for Mental Health.

We'll stop briefly at each museum to take a photo proving we've been there, before heading on to the next one. Time permitting, we may also briefly pop in to a couple of the museums. It will be a whole day of non stop walking - and talking - museums (with a lunch break, of course!)

The plan is to start at 10am and finish around 6pm. The route has not yet been finalised, but will take around 15 to 20 kilometres. Updates on the route and other info can be found at marathon.museum140.com. If you would like to join us, just sign up here via Eventbrite so we have an overview of numbers and can keep you updated on what's happening. Participation is free, but a donation towards our chosen project would be appreciated (we suggest a minimum donation of £5). And, of course, get all your friends to sponsor you too!

All sponsorship will run via JustGiving. There are two ways to do this - you and your friends can donate directly via the Museum Marathon Edinburgh event page (hosted by Jenni from Museum140) OR if you would like to set up your own JustGiving page or you already have one, we can add you to the Museum Marathon Edinburgh team page - just make sure you are logged in to JustGiving and click on the "Join the team" link next to "Team members" at the bottom of the page.
