Charity Skydive

Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of free fall exiting an aircraft at 13,000 feet! Many people who make a skydive or parachute jump do so whilst raising funds for a worthwhile cause.

By raising a minimum amount of funds for The James Barney Foundation you could get your jump for FREE.

The James Barney Foundation has joined up with UK Parachuting and skydiving at Sibson Airfield.

Run for The James Barney Foundation

The Bupa Great Edinburgh Run has been a permanent fixture in Scotland’s Capital city since 2005. Thousands of runners have taken part in the popular event which has become known as the UK’s most scenic urban course, raising millions of pounds for charity over the last 7 years.

The undulating 10k route takes runners through the heart of historic Edinburgh starting and finishing in the beautiful surroundings of Holyrood Park, in the shadow of Holyrood Palace and Arthur’s Seat.

The last kilometre of the route is lined with famous landmarks, the Scottish Parliament, the Queen’s Gallery and the Palace of Holyrood House before arriving at the finish line in Holyrood Park.

It will be a great day for runners who will not be short of inspiration with support from the fellow participants, spectators, a variety of on course entertainment including traditional Scottish bagpipers at every kilometre along the route and the motivation of crossing the finishing line and receiving that all important medal and finishers pack.

If you would like to join us on the run please email us at or sponsor one of our runners at
