Entries are now open for the seventh Meadows marathon which will take place in Edinburgh on 3 March 2013. Despite the name, it wasn't until last year that the event included a full marathon, previously consisting of a half marathon and a 5k fun run
The Meadows marathon is organised entirely by student volunteers and has so far raised over £40,000 for both local and national charities, with around 1000 participants each year. The event is open to anyone who can complete the course providing under-16s are accompanied by an adult.
Meadows marathon said: "We welcome all runners to the event, whether their aim is to set a new personal best, lose a few post-Christmas pounds, or help out a charity. We like to think of our event as the perfect opportunity to combine getting fit with raising money for a good cause, whatever that cause may be."
