Run for Diabetes UK >

We are Diabetes UK. Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm. Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK. More than dementia and cancer combined. That means we need to take action now.

Because we’re the leading UK charity for people affected by diabetes it’s our responsibility to lead the fight against the growing crisis. And this fight is one that involves all of us – sharing knowledge and taking diabetes on together.

We are the largest charity focused on diabetes research in the UK, and have invested nearly £60 million in the last ten years. 

Join #TeamDUK at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and help us to continue our vital work. Register with us, and you’ll receive full fundraising and training support as well as a Diabetes UK running top to wear on the day. If you have any questions, get in touch with us at events.fundraising@diabetes.org.uk or call 0345 123 2399.
