The 8th Annual LP Run opened on Entry Central with the following tempting details and sold out in record time (before the end of May!).

Like running? Like good tunes? Like eating cake?

If you said yes to any of these, then the good news is the ERN LP RUN is back for the 8th year at 11am on Sunday 20th August! This is your LAST OPPORTUNITY to run on the historic track at Meadowbank Stadium before it is demolished and rebuilt!

The run is based on the oldest race in Houston, Texas now in its 50th year. For the ipod generation here is a short explanation. On the crack of the starting pistol you run as many Revolutions Per Minute (laps) of the track as you can during 33 and a third minutes, all the while listening to top tunes. Entrants are responsible for counting their own laps but bands will be given out for each lap completed and there will be independent verification of the front runners and prizes for the top male and female finishers, as well as spot prizes.

You can choose a tune you’d like to hear played as you’re running, the theme for this year’s music is the good old ’80s (for those old enough to remember), so come along and enjoy the experience of running on a track, no matter how fast or slow you are!

There will also be a kids’ race around one lap of the track (with music they are more likely to recognise!) starting at 10.30am, so the whole family can get involved and, as our club likes to say “ERN your cake”!

After the race is done and dusted, arguably the best bit – tea, coffee and cake! Edinburgh Running Network members love their cake, and we have a lot of great bakers, so join in and bring along a cake – there will be a prize for the best cake, but all cakes and traybakes will be welcome, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just tasty!

This year the event is in aid of Streetfit Scotland, a charity providing a health, fitness and well being programme for the homeless and socially disadvantaged to reduce social isolation and improve mental and physical health (charity no. SCO 046638 http://www.streetfitscotland.org/).

ERN is one of the friendliest running clubs in Scotland and we welcome runners of all abilities. Come along and find out just how much we love to run, and eat cake.

As the day approached the tshirts were unpacked, the biscuit medals were baked, the music requests organized into the fab 80s LPRun2017 soundtrack (thanks to Jo Vinall and DJ of the day Sorrel Cosens) and volunteers prepped (Colin Duffus, Ruth Drever, Jim Skelt, Emily Thbn, Murdo Macleod, Chris March, Les McIntosh, Jen Shepherd and Patricia Irving).

On the day the children’s race started the event with 1 lap round the track, 97 people took part in the LP Run itself and the cakes were admired, judged and eaten. Thanks go to Street Fit Scotland for their support on the day and for supplying tea and coffee. Krista Black and her team from Knot Stressed kindly donated their services to those requiring a massage post run. And of course huge thanks go to the LP committee: Eleanor Barnard, Claire Monk and Wendy McFarlane, without whom this event would not have been such a cracking success. We’ll update with the total amount raised for Street Fit Scotland when it’s all been counted up.

Thanks to Mary MacLeod for posting this video of the start
