Turn those miles into smiles, and help poorly pets

Join 'Team PDSA' at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2017.

Our Edinburgh Pet hospital is one of 5 based in Scotland, out of our network of 51 pet hospitals and 380 pet practices UK-wide.

Our friendly, experienced, and of course pet-loving fundraising team are on hand to support you through your running journey.  Whether it's 5k or marathon, we know that it will be a huge personal challenge - and we're here to help you make it a great experience.

At PDSA, saving, protecting and healing pets is what we're all about.  We are dedicated to improving pet wellbeing in three very special ways - by educating owners, preventing disease and carrying out life-saving treatments and operations.

Pets are part of the family.  Our four-legged friends give unconditional love and are often a persons only companion.  They don't deserve to suffer through economic and social hardship.  They can't help themselves.  But we can - with your help.

We’d love for you to run for us.  To help make the most of our *charity places so that we can help more poorly pets, we do set a minimum sponsorship amount for each event.

  • Full Marathon: £500 minimum sponsorship
  • Half Marathon: £300 minimum sponsorship
  • Hairy Haggis Team Relay:  £400 minimum sponsorship
  • 10K: £100 minimum sponsorship
  • 5K: £65 minimum sponsorship
  • Junior races: £30 minimum sponsorship

*These are Charity assured places. Your registration fee has been absorbed into the minimum sponsorship and by entering you commit to raising the specified minimum amount.

If you purchase your own entry:

You’ll receive all the same benefits a charity place runner will receive but there’s no minimum fundraising commitment – we simply ask you to raise as much as you can.


Sign up today and we will look forward to making your Edinburgh Marathon Festival experience furrtastic!
