Save The Children

Are you getting ready for Scotland's top running weekend at Edinburgh Marathon Festival on 25/26 May? The capital comes alive with visitors - 70% of runners come from outside of Scotland - enjoying the sights and soaking up the vibe.

Saturday's 5K & 10K are held at historic Holyrood Palace while Edinburgh Castle is the early backdrop for Sunday's fast and flat marathon route – perfect for beginners and with maximum potential for a personal best!

Save The Children stand side by side with children in the toughest places to be a child. They do whatever it takes to make sure children survive, get protection when they’re in danger, and have the chance to learn. Find out more about this amazing work at the Save The Children website.
