Join #TeamDKMS as we take on the Scottish Half and10K!

This is seriously flat & rapid route– if you want to set a personal best, then this is the event for you. Enjoy magnificent views before finishing in the final furlong at Musselburgh Racecourse; Scotland’s oldest racecourse.

Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. Often their only hope of survival is a stem cell transplant from a stranger and DKMS works hard to add as many potential lifesavers to the blood stem cell registry as possible. The money raised will add more potentially life-saving matches to this register, as adding each one costs DKMS £40, and give more blood cancer patients a second chance at life.

Charity place

Secure your 10K place with a registration fee of £15 and we'll help you raise a further £65, or secure your Half Marathon place with a registration of £20 and we'll help you raise a further £130. To join the team, click the Sign Up button above.

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!
