EMF Virtual Challenge

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is going virtual, allowing you to run and raise money for MND.

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival (EMF) will take place in 2021 as a virtual challenge!

Whether you take on a full marathon, half marathon, 10k, or get the kids involved with the Kids Kilo, there's a distance that will allow you to challenge yourself in 2021.

The virtual challenge is a great way to help you focus on training towards your personal fitness goals, as well as supporting the work of MND Scotland through fundraising. Plus, once it's all over, you'll receive your EMF finisher's t-shirt and medal!
