Edinburgh Landmarks Tour.

Sunday April 7th 2019

An Urban rat race around Edinburgh visting some of the iconic landmarks the nations capital has to offer. Teams of between 1 to 5 people will compete against the clock to visit as many of the 15 checkpoints as possible and returning to the Salisbury arms in under the alloted time of 3 hours.
Runners can also choose to use public transport if they think they will struggle to run for 3 hours which will open the race up to everyone including the juniors
I.e. a team of 2 adults and up to 3 children can purchase a family day travel ticket for £8:50, they can then run from the start to the castle, then run through the gardens to catch a tram to Murryfield, run across to the zoo then catch the bus down to the Royal Yacht etc.
Competing teams will have to take a selfie of themselves outside each checkpoint to prove they have been there.
Hopefully we will all finish in the beer garden of the Salisbury Arms by 12 where the teams will upload the selfies to the club FB page. The team adjudged to have the best pictures by the attending committee members will be declared the winner and collect their financial rewards.
