Run for Oxfam >

Determination is everything. Join the Oxfam Team and we'll use every ounce of our determination to make sure our runners have the experience of a lifetime. Why run for Oxfam? When you run for Oxfam, your extraordinary determination helps whole communities work their way out of poverty. Oxfam is a global movement of people passionate about putting an end to poverty.

There are two ways to join the Oxfam team. You can use your own place to run for Oxfam, or one of our charity places. When you use your own place, there is no minimum fundraising pledge but you still get all the benefits of our charity runners!

Own place runner: register with the race organisers, create a ‘my details’ account and an entry here.

Charity place runner: simply fill out the form at the bottom of the page for the race you want to run to secure your place! To secure your place with Oxfam there is a registration fee and a fundraising target, both of which are listed below:

  • Edinburgh Marathon: £15 reg fee, £550 fundraising target
  • Edinburgh Half Marathon: £10 reg fee, £250 fundraising target


When you join the Oxfam team you can count on:

  • An ethical Oxfam running vest with iron-on letters to write your name or a message
  • Professional training plans for all levels and abilities
  • Fundraising support with dozens of tried-and-tested fundraising ideas
  • The space to chat to other Oxfam runners, sharing advice and support
  • A dedicated running support team, there to answer any questions and give encouragement!

So get your place with Oxfam today and join the team that will make this an experience you won’t forget.
