Why run with us?

We’re Scotland’s only cancer research charity but we fund bold research across the world. There are over 200 types of cancer, so by searching the globe for the brightest minds in science, we hope to kick-start the cancer cures of tomorrow, today. But we can’t do it without your help. As a small charity, we rely on public donations, so your support would mean the world.

Please note that the Edinburgh Marathon Festival has been postponed. New date TBC.
