Sponsorship Target

Fast & flat, this course was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a PB. The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK!

Starting in Edinburgh, the course heads out through East Lothian offering stunning views and an unforgettable running experience. The full weekend of events attracts over 30,000 runners, with thousands more lining the course to support; an event not to be missed!

As part of Team Sands you will receive:

  • Support from our Fundraising team to help you achieve your target.
  • Sands fundraising pack
  • Free Sands t-shirt/running vest (or both!)
  • Pre-event support from our lovely Challenge Events Team
  • Friday Shout-Out on Facebook
  • Sands' Cheer Sticks and Collection Tins
  • Sands Superstar Thank You

Own places:

If you have secured your own entry in either event, we would love to have you on the team! 

There is no minimum sponsorship, all we ask is that you raise as much as you can.

Through taking on Edinburgh's streets, you will raise much needed money to help us prevent more babies from dying and meet the growing need for our support services
