Blast Running November 5km and 10km
Edinburgh, MidlothianGypsy Brae Recreation Ground, Edinburgh, EH5 1, United Kingdom
Sun 27th November 2022
Starting at 10:00
During the period of COVID-19 restrictions the race will take place in a time-trial format, with runners starting in 5 second intervals. The published results will show a chip time (which is the actual time you ran the course) and the official time (which is when the stopwatch starts). Your entry form will ask you to give an estimated 5km time and this will allow us to allocate you in the correct time slot to avoid any pinch points along the route.
They are open to anyone over 11/15 years old on the event date.
They are chip timed, officially distance measured and your times are sent to Run Britain Rankings.
However, please don’t be put off if you’re not a speed king or queen – we support every kind of runner and you’ll be cheered over the line no matter your pace.
YOUR RACE, YOUR PACE!
This month’s runs will have spot prizes plus a wee something for the fastest male and female runners!
You can expect a pre event email with race info, loads of support and a friendly welcome on the day, results will be emailed to you on the day.
