Join us at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival Half Marathon and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
The Edinburgh Marathon Festival (EMF) joins the well known Edinburgh Marathon to create a marathon festival of running that takes you on a whistle stop tour of one of Britains most beautiful cities.
It starts a little earlier and like its sister race, enjoys a grandstand finish at Musselburgh Racecourse.
With 25,000 runners taking part in the marathon and Half marathon, this is one of the biggest running festivals in the UK. Join the Cancer Research UK team and help us to beat cancer sooner.
Join the Cancer Research UK community to receive training and fundraising tips, along with much more, by joining our Facebook event page.
