It’s a very different kind of marathon, one which can take place in your living room!

Participants play games for 24 hours straight, either in tag teams with family and friends or as a hardcore solo run. It is not an easy task and not for the faint-hearted as we push our gaming well past the point where it is fun!

Whether it be on console, computer, mobile phone, facebook or old fashioned board games, everyone is a gamer, so ALL ARE WELCOME!

Sign up today and begin preparation for your gaming challenge on the weekend of 13/14/15 October 2017, as a family, as a club, or on your own.

All we ask is you update the community on social media throughout your marathon using the #sksp hashtag, drink plenty of water and take regular breaks.

(Children under 18 must take part as part of a tag team rather than undertake the full 24 hours themselves)

The foundation supports the work of the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, soon to become The Royal Hospital for Children and Young People. The Hospital receives over 100,000 children through its doors each year from all over the country.
