Blast Running, Spring Series

Gypsy Brae Recreation Ground, Edinburgh

Organiser's Description

Three chip-timed race distances for you to choose from on Sunday mornings: a 2miler, a 5k and a 10km.

Whatever you are aiming for, whether you’re in the middle of Couch-to-5k, or training for a marathon and looking for company during part of your long Sunday run, we’re here to support your goals.

Your speed is not important, just bring your running mojo and we’ll do the rest! There are no weekly prizes except for that feel good glow you will have from taking part!

Our races will start and finish at the Gypsy Brae Recreation Ground, Edinburgh. The route is all tarmac; it's a flat course with no obstacles to manoeuvre.
