Lothian Running Club was founded in 2000, and is still developing. We have members throughout Scotland, but most are in Edinburgh and West Lothian.

Our members include Scottish and British champions, but we welcome runners of any standard. We strongly believe that running clubs are not just for the elite (although we will let fast people join too).

We have a very active junior section and welcome youngsters aged from 8+.  We rely on the parents of young children to assist the coaches.

We cater for all branches of athletics: track & field, road, cross-country, ultra running and hill running. In spite of our name, junior athletes are exposed to jump and throws events as well as running. We also have a number of enthusiastic orienteers and triathletes amongst our members.

Lothian Running Club is a member of Scottish Athletics, you can find out more about what they are about from their website.
