Scottish Mountain Rescue represents 24 Mountain Rescue Teams made up of volunteers that provide a 24 hour rescue service in Scotland. Our 850 volunteers respond in a moment's notice, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide assistance to people in the outdoors. They give up their time, their beds, abandon their work, and are often called away from their families to assist total strangers. These people and the teams they belong to save lives in the outdoors in Scotland.
Scottish Mountain Rescue and our member teams rely on people like you. Without the support of the community it would not be possible for the Mountain Rescue Teams to be there 365 days a year for anyone that needs us. By joining our Edinburgh Marathon Festival Team you will be playing an important part in saving lives and helping mountain rescue volunteers to be there for people when they need us.
We'd love you to join our team for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. You can either join our team with a Charity Assured Place where you will pay a registration fee and pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship or you can join us as an own place runner.
