Mario and Luigi do a lot of running in their games, but do they run with thousands of others while raising money for charity? No? Tsk, poor show.

But fear not, because Nintendo Life Managing Director Anthony Dickens and features editor Tom Whitehead will be running the BUPA Great Edinburgh Run on 14th July; 10km of cobbled streets, lovely architecture and a lot of hilly sections. They'll be doing this to raise money for GamesAid, a UK-based organisation that supports games industry-related fundraising predominantly for children's charities in the UK and, in some cases, overseas.

So we'd like you, the Nintendo Life community, to do two things. First of all, we need you to decide who runs as Mario and who does so as Luigi; there are pictures and polls below to help you decide.

Secondly, we'd like you to spread the word about our fundraising page, which is being run through and accepts worldwide donations. All contributions to the cause are welcome, and even if you can't give yourself, please share with others, with 100% of all donations going straight to GamesAid.

We'll close the Mario and Luigi poll on Saturday 13th July at 12:00 UK time, so get voting!
