Edinburgh Half Marathon

How can I take part?

Applications for our charity places are now closed, but if you already have your own place we would love to hear from you!

I have my own place

If you have bought your place directly through the Edinburgh Marathon Festival organisers, we'd love for you to join Team Beat!

Why run for Beat?

Your fundraising will support our Helpline services so that anyone who is worried about themselves or a loved one can contact our Helpline services 365 days a year, so no one has to face an eating disorder alone – thank you! You can find out more about how your fundraising makes a difference here

We’ll be there to support you every step of your fundraising journey:

Any half marathon is an extremely demanding physical challenge. We strongly suggest that you consult your doctor or clinician before taking part in this event, especially if you have a current or previous medical condition including any experience of an eating disorder. Please also ensure you read and agree to our Fundraising Guidelines.
