Get team up and running

ORGANISERS of the Meadows Marathon are urging local firms and workplaces to enter as a team to get fit together and raise cash for charity.

The event, which was set up in 2007 by Edinburgh University students, will be held on March 4 and include a full marathon along with the half marathon and 5km events.

The team that raises the most will receive a bonus £200 for their charity, with other prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place.

Last year over 800 runners raised nearly £40,000.
