Welcome to your newsletter!

Now, social media has its place, but you can't beat a good newsletter to bring you news, stories and photos from the month. We'll also be putting details of upcoming events and races so you can get involved. This month, it's a look back at the Valentine's Day walk and the half way mark for our intrepid Learn to Runners....  and the launch of our new Walking group!              The EFR Committee

When you become a member of Edinburgh Frontrunners (£15 regular or £5 concession) you get a free EFR racing vest.

Walking members (and non-vest wearing running members) will be pleased to hear that all new members can now choose to get a discount on an EFR hoodie or hi-vis long-sleeved top, instead of receiving a racing vest. 

Get an exclusive EFR Hoody, Hi-vis or vest top... JOIN US!
A hiking we will go! All over Gullan in North Berwick in this case. Another successful day out with BEAUTIFUL weather! So good, in fact, we're planning on starting regular walks :)

Thanks to all those who joined us, Lorraine for the photos, and Fiona for the route planning! 

The next confirmed hiking dates are:            Sunday 3rd April  

Sunday 15th May 

Sunday 26th June 

More details to follow, including the planned routes - watch this space!

If running's not your thing, or perhaps you just fancy a different pace of activity for a change, why not join our NEW EFR Walking group. The group will meet at the same time and place as our runners (6:50pm Wednesdays at the Commonweath Pool, 9:50am Saturdays at Glenogle Pool) before enjoying a walk of approximately 50 mins - 1 hour around some of Edinburgh's most scenic spots.

Check out our events listings for details of longer walks we will be arranging over the next 6 months - with one planned every 4 - 6 weeks :)
The Edinburgh Marathon Festival takes place over the late May Bank Holiday weekend. Places are now closed for the half and full marathon unless you plan to run for a charity, but you can still get involved - EFR will be entering teams into the Hairy Haggis relay!
