Taking Pride

We've finished the latest planning session for the club and are excited to bring you news this month about our forthcoming monthly club runs and our plans for an EFR International run in 2017!

It's been a tumultuous month for the LGBTQ+ community; the horrific shootings in Orlando have no doubt caused many of us to reflect on the importance of movements like the Frontrunners in creating a safe, inclusive and above all else welcoming space. Whether you plan to run, march or just party this Pride season, we look forward to celebrating our diversity with you. Sparkle brightly!

CONGRATULATIONS to all those who participated in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. Some fantastic results, PB's and even silverware!
We are holding an interval training taster session at Holyrood Park on Wednesday 13th July, as well as the usual distances and LTR groups. 
Interval training is ideal for those who would like to improve their running pace, increase race fitness or for general cardio improvement and conditioning. Come along, spice up your training; only basic running fitness required!
There's still time to register for Glasgow Frontrunners's fantastic OUTrun on 20th August 2016!

It's a 5-mile, chip-timed race, in one of Glasgow's most scenic and best-loved dear green places. We'll then head into Glasgow to join the pride march at 1pm and then head back to the Tron for 5pm for food, drinks, a raffle in aid of Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland, and a Ceilidh at 8.30pm.

Registration costs £13/£11 (plus 75p admin). Places are limited to 350 runners, so register early to make sure that you get a place!

For full details check out the OUTrun website or our Facebook event page.

EFR & NFR Holy Island Walk - 7th August
We had such a good time celebrating at the post EMF social with our NFR chums that we thought it would be great to put on a joint walk! 

The walk will be approximately 10 miles and take in Holy Island village and Lindisfarne Castle. We will stop for food (bring your own packed lunch) and then find a nice pub for dinner at the end of the walk

Full details of the walk and the route can be found on the FB event page!
We will shortly be posting a poll for members to vote on their preferred destination for our inaugural "club race away" happening in 2017. The three contenders are Budapest (April), Berlin (May) and Dublin (Aug).

More detailed info about each race will be available on the polling site but watch this space for the poll and start thinking about it now!
We finished off the EMF weekend with our now almost (in)famous annual social. A huge thank you to all our Frontrunner friends who helped the evening go with such a bang, and of course the excellent staff at The Regent for hosting us.
