The Scottish SPCA is encouraging animal lovers to take part in the 2018 Edinburgh Marathon Festival taking place on 26 and 27 May.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity is calling on active locals who are keen to get fit, get active and get outdoors this year as they have spaces for the marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k runs, and also the junior races.
Chief executive Kirsteen Campbell said, “The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is a fantastic way to raise funds for animals in the area, whilst getting fit in the process!
“There’s a race for everyone, from the super fit to a complete beginner.”

Kirsteen added, “The newly introduced route showcases more of Edinburgh’s beauty and will even pass the country’s most iconic dog, Grey friars Bobby!

“We don’t receive any government or lottery funding which means we rely on the public to be able to continue our work rescuing and rehoming animals in desperate need of our help.

“Anyone who sets themselves the challenge of taking part in one of the events really will be helping save lives.”
