ERN is 10 Years Old!

Happy Birthday to ERN!!!

The Edinburgh Running Network celebrates its 10th Birthday on 25 October 2014. To mark this important milestone in the club’s history, we are staging a series of special events for ERN members (10 in fact!) throughout the year.

Winter Talks at Meadowbank – January – March 2014

In order to kick off our birthday celebrations, we held a series of Winter talks at Meadowbank on topics including ultramarathon running, triathlon training and nutrition for runners.  All talks were really well received – thanks to all our speakers who helped make this a success. It was also a great excuse to catch up for a few beers afterwards to catch up during the winter darkness. We are hoping to run these again next year so if you have any topic suggestions or would like to present on a relevant topic, please get in touch with the ERN team.

The John Muir Way Relay – Saturday 10 May 2014

The John Muir Way was officially opened on 21 April 2014. To mark this, and to kick off the club’s birthday calendar ERN decided they would be the first group to complete the entire route in one day. The idea of the John Muir Way Relay was born. More at John Muir Way Relay.

Mike’s Power Breakfast – Sunday 18 May 2014

This was a Sunday run with a difference with the run starting at Mike R’s house in Dean Village. After a great run through a secret garden and along the Water of Leith, once back at Mike’s we were treated to an amazing breakfast in his house and garden. More at Mike’s Power Breakfast.

Porty BBQ and Trail Run – 29 June 2014

The sun shone on the righteous for a fabulous Sunday trail run before much needed sustenance at the Porty BBQ! A fabulous turnout of ERN runners and friends pitched up – as did our new ERN tent! It gave everyone a chance to chat to folks they run with regularly and meet some new folks too – and the food was good too!

5th Annual ERN LP Run – 24th August 2014

ERN’s very own LP Run celebrated it’s 5th anniversary this year with a few extra special additions to mark the club’s 10th Anniversary. The full event report and results are available at The 5th Annual ERN LP Run – 2014.

Geocaching Run – 31st August 2014

Our very own Murdo Macleod of ‘6 Pack’ fame will be arranging a wee running route around the drinking establishments of the EH10 postcode area. Are you game???
