Join Team ECHC today!
Are you looking for a new and exciting challenge for 2021? Will you sign up to the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and help us transform the experiences of children in hospital, so they can be a child first and a patient second?
Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity (ECHC) is a local, independent charity dedicated to supporting the work of the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, as well as other community healthcare settings for children and young people. We work in partnership with the NHS to enhance their provision and provide the best care possible for young patients, to make both theirs and their families experience as stress free as possible. We also focus on and encourage innovation and we are able to assist with, or wholly fund, the most up to date and innovative medical equipment, helping a great hospital become a world class facility.
EMF offers a fantastic opportunity for you to dust off your running shoes, get into training, improve your fitness and raise sponsorship to help children in hospital. We'll provide you with a sponsor pack, online giving page, running top and ongoing support. We'll even be there on the day to cheer you on, and on the Sunday we have a hospitality tent.
We have guaranteed charity places available for all nine events at the EMF and in return for a place we ask that you raise a minimum sponsorship amount:
5K - £5 registration fee, £100 minimum sponsorship
10K - £10 registration fee, £150 minimum sponsorship
Half Marathon - £25 registration fee, £275 minimum sponsorship
Marathon - £40 registration fee, £550 minimum sponsorship
Team Relay - £100 registration fee, £600 minimum sponsorship
1K Junior Race - £5 registration fee, £100 minimum sponsorship
1.5k Junior Race - £5 registration fee, £100 minimum sponsorship
2K Junior Race - £5 registration fee, £100 minimum sponsorship
5K Junior Race - registration fee £10, £100 minimum sponsorship
Enter yourself for a run
You can also purchase your own entry from the EMF website and still choose to raise sponsorship for ECHC. As you will be paying your own entry fee, we do not set a minimum sponsorship amount. We just ask that you raise what you can and that you contact us with your details, so that we can add you to Team ECHC and provide you with a fundraising pack and running top.
Thank you so much for considering Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity. We really hope you can join us for EMF 2021!
