We hold two recreational club runs each week, on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. All runs depart from a park (Holyrood on Wednesday and Inverleith on Saturday). There are no showers, changing facilities or lockers available on both locations, so please come ready to run. 

Cost: There is no per-run charge. If you enjoy our club and would like to continue running with us, after three visits we will ask you to buy a membership (just £15 per year, £5 student/unwaged rate).


After each run, we go to a nearby pub or cafe for food and drinks.  

Wednesday Evening Run

Time: 6:30 pm. Please note many of our routes have limited lighting at night. While this is less of a problem during summer, wearing high-visibility clothing is never a bad idea year-round.

What: Run plus dinner/social.

Where: Holyrood Park (fountain just inside the Commonwealth Pool end of the park)

Routes: Gentle walk-jog options, plus 6k, 8k and 10k distances for more advanced runners with variations around Holyrood Park, Arthur's Seat, and along Braid Burn. The nearby Meadows is also available as a less hilly option. 

Saturday Morning Run

Time: 10:00 am

What: Run and brunch

Where: Inverleith Park (by the flag pole at the top of the hill overlooking the pond)

Routes: beginners' runs, plus 6k, 8k and 10k distances for more advanced runners. Our Saturday routes are mostly on the traffic-free rail trails in North Edinburgh.
