Edinburgh Marathon Festival

27/05/2017

Since 2003, Edinburgh Marathon Festival runners have raised over £30 million for hundreds of amazing charities. Enter into the Festival in 2017 in aid of Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home and help us to help the dogs and cats that are currently in our care and looking for their forever homes. When the training is getting tough and you're wondering what you've got yourself into, the knowledge that you're raising money for the stray dogs and cats will keep you on track right up to race day!

We do not receive any Government or Lottery funding so support such as this really does mean the world to us. Without you, we would struggle to continue our worthwhile work. 

We have runners alreayd signed up to run the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2017 in aid of our animals. Would you like to join them?

You can enter to run for us here.  We have charity places in the marathon, half marathon, relay and 10K. Once you have signed up and requested to run for us, we will then be in touch directly to send out your sponsorship pack including a runners t-shirt.
