Team Capito enters Edinburgh Marathon

Team Capito enters the Edinburgh Marathon

Team Capito's next challenge is participating in the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday, May 29th 2022.  

Some plucky members of Team Capito, along with our partners HP, will be running the Edinburgh Festival Marathon as part of 3 relay teams of 4. 

They'll be raising funds for 5 charities that have helped and supported a number of the team or their families, namely:

  • St John’s Hospital Oncology Department 
  • Epilepsy Scotland 
  • Strathcarron Hospice, Falkirk
  • Marie Curie 
  • Maggie Centre @ The Western Hospital

The 26.2 miles is split into 4 legs, with each intrepid runner running one leg. The distances of each leg are:

  • Leg 1 - The Royal Leg – 8.3 miles
  • Leg 2 – The Cock & Pan Leg – 5.5 miles
  • Leg 3 - The Gosford Leg – 8 miles
  • Leg 4 - The Glory Leg – 4.4 miles

Capito's Managing Director, Mark Gibson said: "We are all delighted at the number of volunteers we have had within the company and are proud of how hard the runners are training.  Not only will this be a fun event but we hope to raise a good amount of money for the 5 charities that we are supporting.  It’s the taking part that counts so no pressure to break world records - I look forward to cheering on Team Capito at the finish line!"

Any donations to our good causes will be gratefully received - you can donate to our Just Giving page here or visit the official Edinburgh Marathon website here.
