Portobello Running Club
Portobello Running Club is located in the east of Edinburgh where the city meets the Firth of Forth in the old seaside resort of Portobello. Much of our training takes place off-road along the Promenade or in the Royal Park and Arthur's Seat. A majority of our runners live in the local area or Edinburgh city centre, but others live as far afield as Haddington, Penicuik and Livingston.
The club has over 130 members and a wide mix of (over-18) ages and abilities, split roughly 60/40 between male and female. Our Wednesday night training sessions generally include around an hour of running in three groups, each led by a coach registered with Scottish Athletics. Anyone interested in joining the club should be able to run for this length of time at a steady jogging pace. If you think this would be too demanding try Jog Scotland at: www.jogscotland.org.uk/ to get started. In any case, come along and try us out before you join the club. Annual resistration fee is £20 with a 50% reduction for students and claimants.
