Run to rebuild a life with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) wants you to join their team at this year's Edinburgh Marathon Festival. Scotland's top running event takes place over the weekend of 27/28 May with over 30,000 runners set to compete in the seven races on offer over two days. With the marathon, half marathon, the Hairy Haggis Relay, 10k, 5k and junior races, there really is something for everyone!

Join the CHSS running team and get your free fundraising pack, with a water bottle, sponsor form, cheering materials and a technical T-shirt. Best of all - be part of something special as you prepare for your big day and then enjoy an amazing race day experience as a CHSS runner.

Your efforts will help support the vital work of CHSS in improving the quality of life for people of all ages affected by life-changing conditions. Rehabilitation programmes include: one to one nursing and therapist support; small group work; community lead groups (offering a range of activities from social meet ups to exercise classes); plus the CHSS AdviceLine which is run by specialist nurses; and the Hardship Fund which supports those impacted financially by their condition.

It's a fantastic cause and you can be part of it!
