Home / Training / Sunday


ERN members meet for a long run each Sunday, usually as part of a training programme for either a Spring or Autumn Marathon. There are also shorter alternatives on the same day, so don’t feel you have to be training for a marathon to come along! Far from it, all are welcome. Runs meet, start and finish at public sports centres, cafes or galleries to allow ease of parking, changing and toilet facilities, please note that if you’re not a member of the facility, there may be a charge. You can find details below and also in the Weekly Member Newsletter. Join us if you can, cost is free for ERN members and non-members who want to try us out for a couple of runs before joining.

Visiting Edinburgh for a short time and just want someone to run with whilst you’re here? We’d love to have you along and will give you a great ERN welcome; there’s no charge but you must be over 18. Let us know you are coming so that we can look out for you; email at ernenquiries@gmail.com

After the run don’t rush off, take time to join us for a coffee and a blether as we head off to a cafe somewhere.

Run Leaders are Elly Mackenzie, Fi Mackenzie.

Up and Coming Runs 

All Sunday runs start at 9:30am from the meet points detailed below, unless otherwise stated.

All ERN runs are currently suspended in line with Scottish Athletics and Government advice due to the Covid-19 situation. 

All spring races on our training plan have been postponed until the autumn and therefore our autumn training schedule will follow the mileage build-up in the table below.  There will also always be a “club run” option of around 6 miles and the John Muir Way 50k will be added to this once there is a revised date for it.  If we are unable to hold group sessions by May then suggestions for marathon build-up routes will be provided.
