Versus Arthritis

It's time to add an extra dimension to your Edinburgh Marathon Festival experience. The May festival is the biggest event on the Scottish running calendar. It's a special event but you can make it extra-special by joining the Versus Arthritis team and supporting an amazing cause.

Millions of people with arthritis are living in pain every single day. Yet too often it is dismissed as ‘just a bit of arthritis’. It shouldn’t be like this, and we’re determined to change the future so that everyone with arthritis gets the support they need.

We are building a movement of people, mounting a loud and visible opposition to arthritis and together we are pushing back. All over Scotland people are taking part in events, such as Edinburgh Marathon Festival, in order to forge a better future for all those living with arthritis.

There are four distances available, so whether you fancy a 5k or the challenge of a full marathon in May 2019 there is something for everyone.

We offer all of our supporters a great support package including:

  • Versus Arthritis running vest
  • Year-round fundraising support
  • Fundraising materials
  • Access to our Team A Facebook group where you chat and swap tips with other runners
  • The most amazing post-race feeling knowing you've done something very special

You could help to fund ground breaking research, life-changing care and powerful campaigns that change the way people view arthritis.
