Visiting Edinburgh and love to run? But…
You don’t know the routes, or want to experience more of the city than the park next to the hotel?
We love running and we love Edinburgh. So let us share this love with you, by taking you on a run tour through or around our stunning city. We combine sight seeing with the enjoyment of running at a pace that you set.
We know, as a runners, that you always take your trainers with you to squeeze in a quickie when you can, but you’re not always sure about the best route to see the most of a city, this is where we come in.
- Tours are personalised for you where possible, so you can choose the day, time and distance and we will design you a tour from 3 to 30 + miles!
- Any level of runners welcome, you set the pace, and we take time along the way for photos too.
- Groups are more than welcome. We have a team of guides ready to run with your conference team or visiting business colleagues.
- If you are into your fitness then you have the option of adding in personal training or bootcamp sessions too!
About your guides:
Running has been a passion of mine for the last 16 years and as my confidence has grown, it has gradually taken me from doing a few 10k’s, to Half Marathons, to Marathons and a few Ultras. I love being out on the trails and in the hills but I also love the city of Edinburgh where I have lived for 20 years and never tire of the hidden gems it has to offer. The freedom of running is always a joy, whatever the conditions! Every year I try to run in new places and participate in new events in different parts of the world because the joy or running is that you can take it anywhere!
I am really lucky to have worked in the Fitness Industry for the last 6 years and am a Qualified Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor and Freelance Group Fitness Instructor. Enjoying and celebrating our health and wellbeing is something I am very passionate about and what better than combining that with sharing all the things that make my home and the City of Edinburgh really special.
When I travel I always pack my trainers, I really enjoy exploring a new town on foot and it’s a great way to find your way around. I also try to enter a local race when I am travelling, it’s always a unique experience and runners are generally nice people to hang out with! I have been running since I was in my teens and have completed 2 ultra marathons, 8 marathons, numerous half marathons and lots of other types of races such as cross country and duathlons. I started organising races last year, I love getting others together to run and finding new challenges.
I have lived in Edinburgh since 2009 and adore this city, it is so vibrant and full of life. I live by the sea on the North side of the city and most of my own running is along the coastline of the Firth of Forth which I would love to share with you if you fancy getting out of the city. Or, I am very happy to come into town and show you the city sights! I took part in the Seven Hills of Edinburgh race this summer and loved it, it’s a long tough route but you get such a sense of the city by running this route. I also love Arthur’s Seat, the panoramic views of Edinburgh and afar from up there are awesome!
