Why sign up for Edinburgh Marathon Festival with Shelter?
We're hugely grateful for anyone who chooses to run for Team Shelter, that's why we give them the best possible support including:
- a professional Shelter running vest
- access to personal trainer support
- expert fundraising advice
- training hints and tips.
The Edinburgh Marathon Festival's famously flat course is perfect for first-time runners, and more experienced athletes hoping to post a personal best.
Lined with spectacular sights and a fervent crowd, the Edinburgh Marathon Festival delivers an amazing experience; the perfect setting to run for Shelter in either the Festival's half or full marathons.
Why run in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival for Shelter?
Every 18 minutes a household is assessed as homeless in Scotland. We offer free advice and support to anyone who faces bad housing or homelessness, but our reach can only go so far. Your sponsorship pledge helps us to ensure that no one faces homelessness alone.
A big thank you for giving me the opportunity to run for Shelter. It was an amazing experience and I've managed to raise just under £2,500. I think your charity does some amazing work, and I am honoured to have been able to help out.
Owen, Team Shelter runner, Edinburgh Marathon
