Run for Sense Scotland in one of the most picturesque cities in the UK

With a brand new route for 2018, join the Sense Scotland yellow team and challenge youself while raising funds for people with complex communciation needs and their families across Scotland. There are loads of ways to get involved amd we'd be delighted for you to join #TeamSenseScotland - there's a running vest here for you.

How to take part:

The Full Marathon: Sunday 27 May 2018, 10.00am.

Fast and flat, this course is ideal if it's your first marathon or you're looking for a personal best. The marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK. With only charity places left, this is the perfect opportunity to prove yourself while raising funds for a great cause.

The Half Marathon: Sunday 27 May 2018, 8.00am.

Directly preceding the Marathon, the Edinburgh Half follows the same fast and flat route allowing for genuine personal best potential. Voted the fastest marathon course in the UK by Runners World, it's a great starter race.
