Jog Leaders


All our Jog Leaders are Jog-Scotland accredited leaders, having completed the Leadership in Running Fitness course.

Pat Blashill

Pat joined Frontrunners in 2018, though it is popularly believed he began running sometime during the Middle Ages. Speed is now apparently inversely related to the amount of his grumbling about the failure of key body parts - a fact borne with considerable patience by his team mates, less so by his long suffering husband. Loves trails and will try to persuade anyone to give up pounding the pavement and take to the hills instead. Look for the lonely light bobbing about on Arthur’s Seat on dark winter nights!


Kate Foggo

Kate joined Learn to Run in January 2016 and hasn't looked back. Within a few weeks she was reliably leading the pack and couldn't hear the whistle! She trained as a JogLeader in September 2016 and was teaching and supporting the next batch of beginners a year after starting herself. She's a committed runner whatever the weather, and a fantastic advocate for inclusion in sport.


Martin Hocevar


Martin is a photographer by profession and a keen runner at heart.


Outside of EFR Martin is also head of Communications Team at International Front Runners as well as their Northern Europe Region Representative.


Al Hopkins

Al, Non-binary, they/them pronouns. With EFR since day one, they've still to fully adjust to the Saturday morning early starts. They love hills, mud, wind, and rivers, and have foolishly promised to enter a swim-run race with Siobhan that’s waaay beyond either of their current abilities, so may well be forced into retirement if they ever manage to get to a start line...


Chris Learmonth


Graham Rimmer-McEilis


Martyn Whitwell

Martyn joined Edinburgh Frontrunners in January 2022 to help get fit and make new friends. Prior to joining EFR, the only running he had done was to catch the train. He has very much enjoyed improving over the intervening months and successfully completed the Glasgow Outrun race in August. Martyn’s other hobby is sailing and he can occasionally be found splicing the main brace. Whilst he is one of many Martins at EFR, he is currently the only one with a Y!
