The route

Why run for Shelter Scotland?

Over 1,300 households are living in temporary accommodation in Edinburgh. By signing up for Urban Rush, you’ll be directly supporting Shelter Scotland, helping us make sure they’re not fighting homelessness alone.

You can support Shelter Scotland during our 50th year and help us be there for everyone who need us. Last year in Scotland, more people than ever before came to us for help. That’s why, 50 years on, we’re still fighting until there’s a home for everyone.

What others have said about Urban Rush:

The point-to-point nature of the event was an interesting change to more traditional looped running routes. It was a real energy boost knowing it was for a great cause, and having the support of the Shelter cheering teams along the way.

— Ben

Seeing so many people united and running for such a great cause was brilliant.

Everyone who runs Urban Rush gets the very best support from us

As a cross-city run, Urban Rush is a different kind of challenge. Our training routes help you hit the ground running and our fundraising support will help you smash your target.
