Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

Edinburgh Marathon - 26 May 2024

In view of the injury which he incurred in the London Marathon, John has given running a miss, except for a couple of steady jogs and at the same time, he pulled out of the Pennine Barrier and the Leeds Marathon as they were totally unachievable without totally wrecking his leg.  However, he decided to have a ride up to Edinburgh to have a go at the marathon. 

Being Scotland, rain was forecast and rain it did.  A lot before the start and it continued until John was half way round, when it did brighten up.    However, as soon as he finished, it was back to rain again.  As for the race itself, John set off steadily away with a view to seeing how his leg held up. stopping every five miles to stretch it, as a precaution.  He lack of running caused him a stamina shortage half way round, but nevertheless, he got round in one piece and he was very pleased to finish unscathed.  It was not a rapid run, but there again, it was not too bad.
