This race has sometimes coincided with the Donkey Brae & BBQ but happily not this year. Unhappily, the weather overnight had been foul; heavy and persistent rain which thankfully eased off for the event. These are lovely, friendly local races which are well organised by Edinburgh Athletic Club and are a straight forward run out and back from the Scottish Gas offices in Granton to Cramond with the 5km race simply having a nearer turn-around point. While the route is mostly flat, there is a wee sting in the tail as you have a short climb up a cycle track to the finish. This year 5 ERNs took part with another 4 helping out marshalling (Fi, Murdo, Nicola and Susie). Recommended.
