We are all students at universities around Edinburgh volunteering our spare time to raise as much money as possible for charities.

Meadows Marathon is an event run by Edinburgh RAG, an initiative of ESCA. Like our Facebook page to find out more about what we do:

The Meadows Marathon is a charity 5K Fun Run, 10K Run, Half Marathon and Marathon organised by student volunteers with the goal of raising a much money as possible for charity. We're open to anyone who can complete the course (age restrictions do apply), whether you want to sprint round in your short shorts or lumber round in a sumo suit, we'll do our best to accommodate you. It's a great atmosphere for runners, spectators and volunteers. With music blaring and various forms of entertainment around the course, it truly isn't your average walk in the park.


For us it's not about how many runners we can squeeze onto the course. We're a fundraising event, so for us it's about how much money those runners raise. Every penny we make goes to charity. In previous years, we have raised £40,000 from 800 odd runners. With your help and enthusiasm, we can beat our 2016 fundraising target and give Meadows Marathon its greatest year yet!
