Portobello Running Club is located in the east of Edinburgh where the city meets the Firth of Forth in the old seaside resort of Portobello. Much of their training takes place off-road along the Promenade or in the Royal Park and Arthur's Seat. The majority of their runners live in the local area or in the Edinburgh city centre, but others live as far afield as Haddington, Penicuik and Livingston.
The club has over 100 members and a wide mix of ages and abilities split fifty-fifty between male and female. Their Wednesday night training sessions generally include around an hour of running in three groups, each led by a coach registered with Scottish Athletics. Anyone interested in joining the club should be able to run for this length of time at a steady jogging pace.
There's no use complaining if you don't do the training." - Portobello Running Club
