Fast and flat, the Edinburgh Marathon course is ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a PB. This increasingly popular route takes in some of Edinburgh’s most historic and iconic landmarks, as well as picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline.
Join Team Beat at the start line and help change the lives of people affected by eating disorders. Our friendly team will be there to support you every step of the way!
You can apply for a charity place to join our fantastic team of Beat runners, or if you already have your own place you can let us know. Simply pick the relevant option below.
If you have personal experience of an eating disorder or current health issues, you should not take part in the Edinburgh Marathon if doing so could put your health and wellbeing in jeopardy. Successful applicants who have had any experience of an eating disorder may be required to provide a doctor’s certificate stating they have a suitable level of fitness to participate.
Registration is now open! Apply for a charity place with Team Beat today.
If you have bought your place directly through the Edinburgh Marathon Festival organisers, we'd love for you to join Team Beat!
Be part of a movement to end the pain and suffering caused by eating disorders.
Your fundraising will support our Helpline services so that anyone who is worried about themselves or a loved one can contact our Helpline 365 days a year, so no one has to face an eating disorder. You can find out more about how your fundraising makes a difference here.
