Lap the Map!

Dust off your trainers as Lap the Map is BACK and this time we are taking on Europe! All 75,868km of its key coastlines!



 After last year's victory, we're once again going head to head with Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity and we need YOU to make sure Team Edinburgh wins for a second year!

You know the drill - the starting pistol will sound on 3 May and from then on, every single, walk, jog or run completed by Team Edinburgh and Team Glasgow is logged on Strava.

The first team to reach the virtual finish line wins. Last year, Team Edinburgh raced ahead, lapping the map of Scotland and then the WORLD in record time! 

Of course, there is only one real winner - the children using our hospitals who are fighting the toughest battles of their lives. By fundraising as you race, you will help to bring comfort, support and smiles when they are needed most. 

Walk, jog or run - let's retain Team Edinburgh's trophy and show Glasgow how it's done, again!
