Club runners at training

Try Running with Us

We’re a friendly, welcoming and very active club, so ideal for regular, adult runners (18+).

If you’re seeking to develop your running, we have a group training structure that we hope will really help you achieve your goals and ambitions. We have a strong coaching team too and we are delighted to have National Coach Robert Hawkins setting our sessions and supporting our coaches and runners.

If you’re looking for support and motivation throughout the year or just after some structure, variety and company for your runs, that’s us too!

If you’re looking for competition, our main membership fees include all the cross-country and relay events you can handle. We have varied club competitions, championships and races, plus we’re nationally competitive at various levels and age groups.

To find out how our club works have a read of our welcome letter that goes through a bit more about what to expect, what level we’re best suited to, and how we break out our training groups so everybody runs with people of similar abilities.

If you’d like to attend a training session for the first time, please fill out a booking/registration form, just be sure to check the ‘First time attendee, or trialing member’ checkbox. On your first night, arrive about 10 minutes early, and introduce yourself. We can then introduce you and ensure you’re in the right pace group. You can also reach out to our membership secretary via We’ll check-in with you too to find out how you got on and answer any questions. Be sure to fill in a booking form on subsequent nights too.

Entirely new to running? Just recently started? We’d perhaps first suggest starting out with the popular couch-to-5k programme, or finding a nearby Jog Scotland group. There’s also a great running group who train in the same area as ourselves, the Southside Slowies (check them out on Facebook), who support C-2-5K. When you’re comfortable running for over an hour, or perhaps your 10k time is below 60 minutes, please give us a try, or if you’re not sure, drop us an email!.

Remember, your first few weeks are free to try out the club. If you’re enjoying the training, then we’d ask you to become a training member of the club.
