About this parkrun

Flat and fast, out and back course with a loop at the far end. Along the sea-front, can be windy and normally a head wind on the way back. Definitely PB potential if not windy.

Pancake flat out and back run, but feels a bit relentless as almost inevitably wind in one of the directions. Easy parking, road shoes and remember the 9:30 start if you don't live in Scotland!

Out and back course like a lollipop, flat, busy, but thins out quickly. Can be windy on the way back.

Flat and fast, hope for a lack of wind (unlikely)

Run down the handle of the frying pan, round the pan, and back up the handle. Pancake flat ;-) Nice views of the sea, and good parking nearby.

If you get a day with no wind, then hello PB! Otherwise, be prepared to struggle.

Regularly pulls in 600, occasionally 700 runners so this isn’t for those who like solitude. Along the promenade beside the Forth. Out and back. Very flat but exposed so can be windy. On a calm day you’ll not get a faster course Several cafe options

Woo! PB by 20 odd seconds. Lovely flat course (quite the novelty ;-). Chuffed to bits. Well done to all involved, great to see 400 runners in Scotland (about 200 at both Edinburgh and Glasgow) taking part in parkrun. Next stop... Where? Go on, get involved, you know you want to.

Great first Edinburgh Parkrun, lovely to have this race so close. Turned up expecting to marshall so wasn't prepared to run but enjoyed it immensely anyway, a beautiful crisp clear morning, couldn't have been better.

Great first running of Edinburgh Parkrun. Superb marshaling and the weather couldn't have been better.
Very nice friendly event.

Loved it. Very pleased with how legs felt, and a season's best 5k for me :-)

Excellent conditions for the first official Edinburgh parkrun. Ran very evenly and enjoyed the run. Great to see some new Fetchies (and the old ones), well done to the volunteers. PB here another day.

I wore my club vest and went for it, I didn't collapse at the end, so I can still run faste. How good would it be to get under 20! Well done to the organisers and other fetchies, well worth the drive through from Glesga toon! wava of 73.75% my best ever!

First Edin Parkrun. Very well attended, great route, weather, chat etc. Really chuffed with pb and will be there as ofetn as possible through the winter. Only wee issue might be the tag/recording if the numbers stay high as the queue was pretty lengthy.
Fat Boy
Superb event and a fantastic fast course. Finished 8th and delighted with time. A very good turnout of about 150 - 200 runners for the first Parkrun in Edinburgh and we were all very lucky with ideal weather conditions.
