Meadows Marathon is an annual student-organised running event held in The Meadows in Edinburgh to raise money for local, national and international charities. The event is organised by Edinburgh RAG, an initiative of Edinburgh Students’ Charities Appeal (ESCA), and has raised over £200,000 for charity since its inception in 2007.


It now incorporates 10K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon distances into a packed day of running each spring.




Meadows Marathon is supported by Edinburgh RAG. 

Each academic year, three beneficiary charities are chosen and a percentage of all proceeds are split between them. Participants in our sponsored events, including Meadows Marathon, are encouraged to fundraise for them.

Applications open in the summer and are shortlisted and voted for by the RAG committee. If you work for a charity which would like to apply then click below to register your interest and you will be notified when applications open
