Edinburgh Marathon Festival Junior Events

Quite simply, our annual Edinburgh Kids Fun Run for Coeliac UK is a great day out! Whether it is taking part as an individual, as a group of friends, or with a parent or sibling by your side, it’s a fun way to exercise, make new friends and raise vital funds for people living without gluten.

I did the EMF Junior run to raise money for Coeliac UK to help other people get better and maybe someday find a cure. The race was great fun. Other children should definitely do it so that we can raise more money and have fun! Bibi, aged 7
