Edinburgh Marathon 2021


Show the world that humanity can win in the Edinburgh Marathon

Join our team of human rights heroes in the Edinburgh Marathon. Famously flat, the Edinburgh Marathon has been named the fastest in the UK by Runners World, making it perfect for a first marathon or if you’re looking for a new PB! Starting in Edinburgh University, the route takes you along the beautiful scenery of the Edinburgh coastline and past iconic landmarks, including Arthur’s Seat and Greyfriars Bobby in the historic town.

As part of #TeamHumanity, you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting, stickers and collection tins,
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £450 sponsorship, and there is a £25 fee to register.

With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. At Refugee Action, we’re determined to ensure that Britain is a country that truly welcomes refugees. By taking on this challenge, you will be getting us one step closer to that reality.
