Come and join The Brain Tumour Charity at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. There's a distance for everyone, from 5km up to the full marathon. 


Your brain is the most extraordinary part of your body. It's responsible for your ability to move and to communicate. It controls your emotions and stores your memories. It's the part of you that makes you, who you are.

Yet, 102,000 people are currently living with a brain tumour and the impact can be devastating. Research into brain tumours is woefully underfunded. Survival rates are just 11% and treatments haven't changed in 40 years.

We know progress isn't happening fast enough. We need to do more, if we're going to find a cure. And we need to do it now. That's why we're investing in more forward-thinking research, more specialist support services, and passionately lobbying for more urgent change.

We're committed to improving life for everyone affected and to defending the most incredible part of the human body.

Brain tumours strike fast. But we believe that with your continued commitment and support, we can be the generation that stops them – right in their tracks.

We won't stop until we have.
