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.
