Walk • Jog • Run
We hold two recreational club sessions each week. Wednesday evenings from The Royal Commonwealth Pool and Saturday mornings from Inverleith Park.
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).
To be an Edinburgh Frontrunner does NOT mean you have to run to take part.
EFR encourages their members to MOVE around this great city any way they want to. We have seen a growing number of members choosing to take part by walking. Most go for a comfortable stroll around the Meadows and Holyrood Park or along the Water of Leith or round the Royal Botanic Garden.
So if you're interested in a 45-60 minute walk with us, don't let all this talk of training put you off.
After each run, we go to a nearby pub or cafe for food and drinks.
If you are joining us for one of our sessions please use the weekly sign-up sheets link.
