1 in 6 people will have a stroke. A stroke is a brain attack that happens very quickly, often with no warning and it can have a devastating impact. 1 in 4 people die within a year of having a stroke and more than half are left with a disability. Stroke causes a greater range of disabilities than any other condition and can lead to physical, emotional and mental difficulties. Stroke can happen to anyone of any age and a quarter of all strokes happen in people of working age or younger.

The Stroke Association supports people who have had a stroke, their families, friends and carers; we fund vital, life saving stroke research and we raise awareness of what a stroke is, how to lower your own risk factors and what to do if you suspect someone is having a stroke.

Join Team Stroke for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and together we can conquer stroke. We have places across all the events and minimum sponsorship for charity places are:

Marathon £495 with £20 registration fee

Relay £495 (per team) with £40 registration fee
