EMF has an event for everyone, from the kids kilometre to the 10K, relay, half and full marathons. Voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runner’s World in 2008, Edinburgh marathon is enjoying a fantastic new route that takes in some of the city's most iconic landmarks, as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline. 

Last year we had runners take part in all of the running distances including two of our members Noah and Diesel (pictured below) who completed the Kids Kilometre! Noah and Diesel raised over £750 for The Yard and it was great to hear how much fun they had. 

"I am raising money along with my friend Diesel for The Yard. I first went there with Diesel, my mummy and our friend Kelly. I had so much fun and I was made very welcome, the best part was I could go outdoors and play on the bikes and in the river with bubbles. I liked it so much I decided to be a member. The Yard provides a safe and inviting space for children like Diesel and I who have Autism Spectrum Disorder along with children with many other disabilities, the staff are wonderful and we love it there very much."
