Edinburgh Marathon Festival: Virtual Challenge

Home May 29 — May 30

Join in Scotland’s biggest virtual running festival

There are multiple distances to choose from including marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k and you get to set the rules! Do a marathon all in one day or split it over multiple days. Or you could ask friends to join you in a virtual team rely.

Whether you have your sights set on the marathon or a shorter distance, this is the perfect setting to run for Action for Children Scotland.

The money you raise will make a real difference to vulnerable children and young people, as well as services that care for families and parents.
