How to get a place

Take on the half marathon with a half marathon charity place and be an Oxfam super hero by raising £250.

For the full marathon, raise £550 when you run with a full marathon charity place and help show poverty the finish line.

Or if you've got your own place in either race let us know and raise as much as you can to help end poverty, faster.

Why run for Oxfam

Doing the Edinburgh Half? Your £250 sponsorship could provide 17 people with an emergency kit. When disaster hits, this kit can be a real lifeline. It’s a bucket full of hygiene essentials, from soap to sanitary towels, to help people who have lost everything to stay clean and healthy. Not only is it a disease-beater, but being able to wash is a step towards getting life back to normal.
