Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2021

29th - 30th May 2021

Featuring distances all the way from a full marathon to a 5K (and everything inbetween) Edinburgh Marathon Festival is a fantastic event for runners of all levels. Regardless of the route, you'll be treated to a fast, flat course and iconic views including Edinburgh Castle.

Apply for a charity place

We have places available in the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K races. If you'd like to join Team DKMS for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, we will ask for a registration fee and then support you in raising a minimum sponsorship amount. For more information, please register your interest below.

Own place

If you have secured your own place we'd love you to join #TeamDKMS as an own place runner. This means that you'll receive the same support as our charity runners but there’s no minimum fundraising target - you can have fun and raise as much as you can!

I'VE GOT MY OWN PLACE! Or email: communityevents@dkms.org.uk

By joining team DKMS, you will receive:

  • Dedicated personal support

  • A branded DKMS technical T-shirt so you look the part

  • Fundraising pack with tips to make your target easier to hit, so you can focus on the race

  • The amazing feeling of crossing the finish line knowing you have helped to add more potential lifesavers to the blood stem cell register
