Join Team Bowel Research UK at the Edinburgh Half Marathon 2024

The Edinburgh Half Marathon is now full, and we no longer have any places available. However, if you have secured your own place in this event then you can still join our team and receive the same support as our charity runners, you just set your own fundraising target!

If you have your own place and would like to join Team Bowel Research UK, please email our fundraising team

Directly preceding the Marathon, the Edinburgh Half Marathon follows the same scenic, fast, and flat route, offering genuine PB potential and an excellent alternative for those who don’t fancy the full 26.2.

Why run for Bowel Research UK?

With your support, we can:

  • Work towards a future free from bowel cancer
  • Improve the quality of life for those affected by Crohn’s disease, colitis, IBS and other life-altering bowel conditions
  • Get vital health messages out there and trample on taboos

What support do I get when I sign up?

As part of the Bowel Research UK team, you will receive:

  • An exclusive Bowel Research UK running vest to wear during training and on race day
  • A fundraising pack full of tips and inspiration
  • Tailored advice from our fundraising team to help you reach your target and get the most out of the event
  • Great support from our online social channels to help you achieve your goals



If you have your own place then we’d also love to welcome you to our team!  Email us to let us know you plan to support Bowel Research UK.
