Every day, 300 people are diagnosed with macular disease. It's the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK.

Macular disease is cruel and isolating. It steals your sight, your independence and your ability to do the things you love.

It can affect people of any age - even children - but not enough is known about why, and there is still no cure.

There is only one way to Beat Macular Disease for good. We must fund much more research now, until we find a cure, or find treatments that stop it in its tracks.

Join Team Macular and together we can fund the research that will find the cure. Together we can make sure the next generation won't have their sight, confidence and love of life stolen from them by macular disease.

Get a place

For our charity places in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, we ask for a small registration fee of £10 for 5k, 10k and junior event places, £20 for the Half Marathon, £25 for the Marathon & £40 for the Hairy Haggis relay.

We also ask you to raise a minimum amount in sponsorship. This is: £50 for junior events, £100 for the 5k, £150 for the 10k, £350 for the Half Marathon and £650 for the Marathon & Hairy Haggis relay. Once you've applied for a place, we'll be in touch to explain more.

You can, of course, choose to raise vital sponsorship for us through your own place.

All our runners receive a dri-flo running vest or cotton t-shirt and we'll support you with all the advice and encouragement you need.
