Meadows Marathon

Meadows Marathon returns on Sunday 3rd March to raise money for charity


Meadows Marathon returns on Sunday 3rd March! Organised by students to raise money for charity, this event involves a 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon and relay.

Meadows Marathon is an initiative of Edinburgh Students’ Charities Appeal (ESCA), in partnership with Edinburgh Napier Events Society, and has raised over £238,000 for charity since its inception in 2007. This year, the chosen charities are Fresh Start and Pilton Community Health Project.

There are plenty of ways to get involved:

  • Dust off your running shoes and sign up to run one of our races solo
  • Put together a university club/society relay team. Teams with highest fundraising totals will win £200, £100 and £50 respectively to support their society’s activities
  • Not a runner? Join our team of on the day volunteers, no prior experience necessary!
