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 Wednesday and Glenogle Swim Centre on Saturday), with both venues offering cubicled showers and gender neutral changing areas.Showers cost £1.70, and lockers use a refundable £1 coin deposit or token.
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: 6:00 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.
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
note: our runs start from the Glenogle Road (lower) entrance of the Swim Centre, not the Saxe Coburg Place (upper) entrance.
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.
