Edinburgh Festival of Running 2017

5km – 27 May 2017

I entered this race because I don’t get to do many road 5km races and I was travelling up to support Rose in the marathon.  Its a tough race, basically the first half climbing, then levelling out and a fast down hill finish.  1092 runners finished the race and I was pleased to finish second overall with a time of 18:11, not the time I was looking for but I did not know how hilly the race was going to be.

Marathon – 28 May 2017

Firstly I would like to mention that two of our most popular runners and club captains Darren Wood and Rose James had to pull out from the race, always a tough decision to make but got to look at the bigger picture, so well done for making the right call both.  You have both put the training in and will be strong for it going forward.  I know Sharon Maughan is grateful to her guide runner, he was unwell during the race but managed to guide Sharon to the end.

Volunteers’ Week

Between the 1st and 7th of June is National Volunteers’ Week. As we are run entirely by volunteers we think it’s the perfect chance to help more people get involved in supporting the club. We’re arranging some little events and projects to help spread the word. Every little bit of volunteering helps our young athletes, road runners, and disability athletes develop and improve, so if you are able to give your time then please do!
