We want YOU to come along and take part in the Women’s 10K Edinburgh. Starting on the historic Royal Mile, this incredible city centre route takes you past the Scottish National Gallery and into Princes Street Gardens, with the iconic Edinburgh Castle as your backdrop. It then goes past the Scott Monument and swoops past the Scottish Parliament building, before carrying onto Holyrood Park. Here you take in the spectacular Arthurs Seat, as well as Holyrood Palace and Dynamic Earth, before heading on to the Grassmarket. As you reach the hustle and bustle of the Grassmarket you’re past the halfway point, where the cheering crowds will help you on your way to a grandstand finish at BT Murrayfield Stadium. Maybe you’ve not done any exercise in a while and need a goal to motivate you, maybe you want to do something positive together with your friends and family, or maybe you want to fundraise for a worthwhile cause. Whatever your reason, the Women’s 10K is the perfect opportunity for you to lace up those trainers and make a difference, either to your own life or someone else’s.
It's always easier to train when you've got something in mind train for. Find an upcoming running event in your area and sign up, it's as easy as that. Train each week in preparation for the big day and then go out and have fun with it. You will have runners at all different levels of running abilities. You'll have semi pro runners right down to absolute beginners. Running is for everyone when you realise that the only person you're competing with is yourself - to gradually make those improvements and gains. Good luck on your journey.
