Come for a run!
We hold two recreational club runs each week, on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. All runs depart from a leisure centre (Royal Commonwealth Pool on Wednesdays and Glenogle Swim Centre on Saturdays). Showers, changing facilities and lockers are available at both locations post-run (£1.90, card only + £1 coin, refundable, for the locker). We have access pre-run to lockers on Saturdays at Glenogle, and cars will be available to deposit kit on Wednesdays.
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 and head-torches is advised November to March. At this time lockers and showers are after the run.
What: Run plus dinner/social.
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 the Innocent Railway Path. The nearby Meadows is also available as a less hilly option.
Saturday Morning Run
Time: 10:00 am
What: Run and brunch
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.
