Organiser's Description

The Edinburgh Running Network LP RUN is back!

Do you like the idea of running on a track? To good tunes? With cake for afters?

We have just the race for you.

After a two-year break we’re delighted to be returning to Meadowmill Sports Centre, near Tranent at 11am on Sunday 25th September 2022.

It’s been a tough two years, but we’re delighted to be able to meet up again, run with friends, and share a cuppa and cake afterwards. ERN is one of the friendliest running clubs in Scotland and we welcome entries from runners of all abilities. Not everyone has had the chance to run on a track, it is a great experience and no matter how fast or slow you are, everyone is in it together.

Our run is based on the oldest race in Houston, Texas, which has been going for over 50 years. For the download generation here is a short explanation of the format, which to be honest doesn’t clarify much but hopefully you get the picture…

When the music starts, you have 33.3 minutes to run as many laps of the track as you can (33.3 revolutions per minute being the speed of a 12” Long Play vinyl record). The music is selected by the entrants, making a unique soundtrack for each LP Run.

When you enter you are asked to nominate a tune you'd like to hear during the run. In celebration of our post-pandemic comeback, we’re looking for songs that make you Happy, relish the Freedom, and want to Keep On Running.

Every entrant will receive a medal, and be entered in the raffle prize draw. We have prizes for the top finishers and other spot awards.

There will also be 100m and 400m juniors races starting at 10.30am, no need to register in advance just join in on the day. The whole family can get involved and go home with a coveted biscuit medal.

After the running is done, it’s time for tea, coffee and cakes. Please join in and bring along some baking. All savouries and sweets welcome, it doesn't have to be perfect, just tasty. For some, the hottest competition of the day is for star baker! (Adult and junior prizes)

The 2022 LP Run is in aid of the All Abilities Athletics group that train at Meadowmill under Team East Lothian (registered charity SCO45501) The all-abilities group are coming along to join in on the 25th September, and all profits from the event and donations on the day will go towards their training activities.

2022 LP run T-shirts are £12, available only as a pre-order by 5pm on 7th September. There's no missing this year's bright electric green.

 

Please note that music requests & T-shirt orders must be placed by 7th September.

As this is a charity event no refunds will be given.

The ERN LP Run is a Scottish Athletics Track and Field Permit Event held under UK Athletics Rules.

 

Edinburgh Running Network wish to thank Active Root, Enjoy Leisure, Team East Lothian and Up and Running for their support of the LP Run.
