RunningBeside.me and Run The Sights are pleased to announce something new for the Scottish trail runner - The Foxy Trail Runners.

The Foxy Trail Runners?

Ali, Mandy and Owain all took part in the Foxtrail winter races and are now wanting to continue their trail fix during the summer months, until Foxtrail returns in the Winter.
They have created the group The Foxy Trail Runners to encourage runners to come together to enjoy running off-road and exploring new trails around Edinburgh and the Lothians.

 

What to expect

Each month they will plan a 10k trail route and everyone is welcome to join them.
These are informal social runs and all they ask is that you can run 10k., what ever that pace may be.
This is not a formal event, there will be no marshals, no timers, no route markings, you run at your own risk. The only guarantee is that no-one will be left behind.
They will meet at 10am, run some amazing trails and finish at a cafe! What's not to love about that?

The Foxlake team have been really supportive of this idea and Owain, Mandy and Ali would like to thank them for their support. After the run on the 28th May you can enjoy tea/coffee/cakes and light nibbles at the Foxlake cafe and if you have nothing else planned, why not check out the Foxlake website to see the activities they offer! Wakeboarding anyone? 

Signing up

All runners will be asked to sign up in advance of taking part in their first run. Although this may seem formal, it’s simply to make sure everyone is clear that these events are social events and runners are taking part at their own risk.  It also provides contact details should any event need cancelled at short notice.
