Our Official Charity!   



 Who makes you go the extra mile?

Join Team Macmillan today and together we’ll go the extra mile to help thousands of people living with cancer. 

Macmillan Cancer Support is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by cancer. We provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support and push for better cancer care. 99% of our work is funded by voluntary donations, that’s why your support will make so much difference.

Running one of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival races for Macmillan means there’s a team of people around you every step of the way, giving you a lift and inspiring you on to the finish line. And by taking part you’ll raise vital money for Macmillan and make a real difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. 

So, join Team Macmillan today.
Let’s go the extra mile together.
