What we're about

Let's meet and run! We are a group of running enthusiasts who like to face the elements and explore the beautiful Edinburgh region in our running shoes. We meet for runs of different levels - some of us are training for marathons, some of us just like to jog and socialise, others come for a brief run around the meadows to relax after work. If we find that the group includes runners of very different levels, we usually split, with some choosing a faster rhythm. We aim to meet several times a week, using different trails with shorter/longer distances to please everyone. Everyone can join or organise a run.
Welcome!
