Be part of something special and join the largest team at the stunning Edinburgh Festival 5k! The route takes you through the heart of Edinburgh, offering stunning views of the Castle and panoramic views of the city.
We would love to have you join Team Macmillan as the Official Charity for the Edinburgh 5k 2022 and be part of the sea of green on race day! There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the Edinburgh 5k 2022:
Secure a charity place at the Edinburgh 5k
Entry is free, but we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £80 to support people living with cancer. To sign up for a charity please click here.
Use your own place
If you have bought a place in the race already and would like to run for us, sign up here and we'll get a free Macmillan running top sent to you. There's no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!
This event could raise £535,000 which could pay for 10 Macmillan nurses for a year.
Why should I join Team Macmillan?
As a Team Macmillan runner you'll receive:
Our fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
A sports massage and post-event hospitality.
Regular e-newsletters to keep you up to date with Macmillan's news and activities.
The loudest and most supportive cheer points on the course!
Most importantly we'll provide you with a reason to keep going because you'll know that you're helping improve the lives of people living with cancer. Donations make up 98% of our annual income so we simply couldn't do what we do without you.
Please make sure you have read our Terms and Conditions before signing up. You must be aged 11 or over on the day of the event to take part.
For questions regarding accessibility at this event, please contact the event organisers.
Ready to join?
By joining us you'll know that you're helping improve the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.
We need an army of cheerers to make this event special. If running is not your thing or you have any family and friends who'd like to come and support you on the day, we'd love them to join our volunteer team!
