The annual Edinburgh University Hare & Hounds Braid Hills XC Race is back!! Taking place on Saturday 13th November 2021, over the scenic, rolling hills of Southern Edinburgh. The undulating course is very popular with local club runners and a regular in the calendar for much of our alumni membership and our peers at universities countrywide.
